Yaounde Photo Network (YPN), in collaboration with Biennale Internationale de Casablanca – Project Space, is pleased to announce its first presentation of Cameroonian photography and video art from Africa and the Diaspora in Morocco.
Organised as a part of the 5th Biennale Internationale de Casablanca 2020 incubation programme, with events planned in Casablanca throughout 2019 and 2020, this showcase will bring together established and emerging practitioners working across photography, video and installation.
The projects will include Regards : photographie camerounaise, an exhibition featuring Cameroonian photographers Romuald Dikoumé, Blaise Djilo, Max Mbakop, Yvon Ngassam, Antoine Ngolkedo’o and Charlotte Yonga.
Additionally, after Yaounde, London and Tokyo, YPN will also host its video art programme in Morocco for the first time. Digital Africa – Casablanca will feature video works by: Hakeem Adam (Ghana), Driss Aroussi (Morocco/France), Wendimagegn Belete (Ethiopia/Norway), Paul Emmanuel (South Africa), Badr El Hammami (Morocco/France), Khireddine Khaldoun (Algeria), Mohammed Amine Al Makouti (Morocco), MahlÕt Sansosa (Brazil/Tanzania), Yvon Ngassam (Cameroon), Marton Robinson (Costa Rica/USA), Leandré le Roux (South Africa) and Carly Whitaker (South Africa).
The artists were selected following an open call launched from December 2018 to February 2019. Experimenting with the newly open BIC – Project Space, the videos will be displayed in dialogue with the photography work, across a diversity of formats ranging from monitors to large projections.
