Footnotes

  • Julien Sinzogan was born in the Republic of Benin, once one of the largest slave-trading ports on the West African coast. The Yoruba people of Benin and Nigeria believe life takes a cyclical trajectory through which individuals experience the tangible world (aye), depart to the spirit world (orun) and are reborn. The voyages between such realms lie at the heart of religious practice across much of the Atlantic world.

    Julien Sinzogan lives and works in Paris. After studying architecture in Tashkent and then in Paris, he now devotes his time to drawing and painting. He often combines monochrome drawing with colored forms which draw upon the sources of vodun and history in Benin.
