Solo exhibition by Charles Arthur Feuvrier. The exhibition revolves around the savat DoDo, a flip-flop of Mauritian origin. Charles-Arthur Feuvrier has created a myth around this flip-flop, setting it up as a totemic symbol to tell us about Creole diasporas and their cultures in the digital age. The exhibition will be accompanied by a text by Caroline Déodat.

Caroline Déodat is an artist, filmmaker and researcher. She has a doctorate in anthropology from EHESS, and trained at the École des Beaux-Arts in Lyon as part of the Art post-graduate programme. Through her films and installations, she explores the spectral dimensions of the moving image, moving between fiction, fable and ethnography. From her obsessions with the processes of archiving and alienation, history and the myths of violence, she seeks to tell stories and weave hidden genealogies by summoning haunted memories, deferred archives and oral images. Her work has been shown at the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid (ES), the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation in Turin (IT), the 67th Salon de Montrouge (FR), the HKW Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin (DE), etc.

Her essay 'Dans la polyphonie d'une île'. Les fictions coloniales du séga mauricien was published by Éditions B42.

Charles-Arthur Feuvrier, born in 1997, is Mauritian-French. Working mainly in sculpture and digital images, he is a graduate of ESA Réunion and ENSBA Lyon. Co-founder of monopôle artist-run-space, he is one of the winners of the Mécènes du Sud Aix-Marseille grant in 2022 and is taking part in the GENERATOR programme in 2023.
