  • 🧡I like the freedom in this print, there's always freedom when you don't know what you're doing. This was one of my firsts. Now I know a little bit and already feel the spontaneity becoming scarce. What to do? 🤔

  • Last night in a ceremony at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Joana Choumali, the Ivorian photographer, was presented with the Eighth Prix Pictet for her series Ça va aller (it will be ok) on this cycle’s theme of Hope.

As with William Kentridge, she chooses to draw attention to invisible conditions and the residue of trauma, via colourful lines which she sews into her photographs. There is a kind of Vincent van Gogh vibe going on too. 
The series of photographs were taken weeks after the terrorist attacks in Grand Bassam in 2016. Choumali said ‘This work is a way to address the way Ivorian people deal with trauma and mental health. Each stitch was a way to recover, to lay down the emotions, the loneliness, and mixed feelings I felt. Adding embroidery on these street photographs was an act of channelling hope and resilience.’ #photography #art #africanart #trauma #contemporaryart #artprizes #africa #ivorycoast #wartimeart
