Philippe Dudouit

The dynamics of dust

East Wing Gallery, Dubaï, United Arab Emirates

Philippe Dudouit’s work is founded on in depth historic, geopolitical and cartographic documentation, research and analysis, making the presented project a long term photographic study on the socio-political evolution of the Sahelo-Saharian zone since 2008. Dudouit documents the new relationships that historically nomadic autochthonous Saharan inhabitants of the Sahelo–Saharan band have forged with a territory they cannot pass through freely, or safely, anymore.

Exhibition curator: Lars Willumeit.
Prints by Laurent Cochet, Lausanne.
Framing by Artproof, Tallinn.
With support from the Swiss Confederation and the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
