Ken Aicha Sy

Survival Guide is a curatorial project that aims to create a tool for understanding the historical heritage of Senegalese visual arts and the crucial years of the 1980s and 90s. Ken Aicha Sy will use this multidimensional tool to facilitate transmission to future generations: Understand your past to be able to build the future.

During her residency as part of the TURN2 Residencies, Ken Aicha Sy intends to meet with academics and researchers, galleries and open lines of conversation on deconstruction, transmission and heritage. Through this process, she will complete her research and reflection process in order to create a multidimensional format adapted to the needs of the project. She also seeks to open up lines of public conversation on these subjects.
