El Anatsui pieces are stunning, gorgeous, never seen before. This 77 years old Ghanean artist, living in Nigeria, has been working for two decades with recycled metal, building colorful and powerful cloths. He made an installation at the Conciergerie, with arches above two rivers, stones and cloths, especially build for this location.
J’ai visité cette installation de El Anatsui à la Conciergerie. Cet artiste ghanéen de 77 ans établi au Nigéria travaille depuis 20 avec du métal recyclé, que lui et ses assistants transforment en immenses pièces de ‘tissu” chatoyant.

Isn’t his work amazing Ghis? His work Hover II was for years my favorite piece in the whole de Young museum in San Francisco. It’s no longer exhibited 😦 https://art.famsf.org/el-anatsui/hovor-ii-2004109- Wonderful to read your blog.
