RICHARD TAITTINGER GALLERY is excited to present 'Colorful Line', a solo exhibition of works by the acclaimed Cameroonian artist Pascale Marthine Tayou, curated by Jérôme Sans in collaboration with GALLERIA CONTINUA, San Gimignano / Beijing / Les Moulins / Habana.

About

The exhibition Colorful Line has been conceived as a journey within Tayou’s universe: a deliberately mobile, heterogeneous work. Deeply linked to his own "voyager mind", Tayou’s work comes into contact with what is other to the self. His objects, sculptures, installations, drawings and videos have a recurrent feature in common: they dwell upon an individual moving through the world and exploring the issue of global village. 

The title “Colorful Line” comments on the continuing problem of the plague of racial discrimination in the United States and of these cultural associations as well as the reference to color, which crosses throughout Tayou’s work. The term “Color Line” was originally used as a reference to the racial segregation after the abolition of slavery.

This exhibition will feature a range of works that will include some iconic pieces such as the monumental installation Plastic Tree, Chalk Fresco A (2015), and Colonne Pascale (2018), and some works created specifically for this show such as the impressive 70 foot long Code Noir (2018), a new Graffiti neon series and Bogo Bear (2018).
