Yäde

Alou XII

April 15, 2016 - July 11, 2016

At the heart of Alou XII’s first solo show in the United States, “yädë” (voyage in fulani), are conflicting feelings of displacement and discovery inherent in long-term separation from home. Lush, richly textured large-scale paintings and videos that comprise much of “yädë” occupy the space between figuration and abstraction as physical landscapes meet landscapes of memory and imagination. Evoking scenery blurred and washed by rain, seen through windows of trains and cars by an artist always in transition, Alou XII’s works deploy densely layered imagery to simulate the collapse of all past and present sensory and mental experience into singularity at the moment of perception.
