Introducing “Corps et âmes” by Nelson Gomes Teixeira, a poignant mixed media artwork available for acquisition at Artkofa online art gallery. Crafted by the artist from Cap Vert, now based in Paris, this original piece serves as a profound tribute and political commentary on historical narratives.
This artwork is created by Nelson Gomes Teixeira
In this evocative composition, a group of young men takes center stage, representing the Senegalese Riflemen, known for their significant role in World War I, particularly in the service of France. The deliberate choice to spotlight these individuals speaks to the often-overlooked contributions of colonial subjects during crucial moments in history.
The Senegalese Riflemen, characterized by their distinctive uniforms, become emblematic figures in Teixeira’s work, embodying both the individual and collective sacrifice made by these men. Their portrayal serves as a visual acknowledgment of the complex dynamics of colonialism and the intertwining of personal and political narratives.
Set against a backdrop of red-hued bodies, the artwork takes on a symbolic resonance. The red color may evoke notions of sacrifice, bloodshed, and the shared humanity that transcends national and ethnic boundaries. The layering of bodies in the background adds depth and complexity to the narrative, prompting viewers to reflect on the interconnectedness of lives and histories.
Teixeira’s “Corps et âmes” is a testament to the artist’s commitment to engaging with political themes. By intertwining historical references with contemporary artistic expression, the artwork prompts a reconsideration of the narratives that shape our understanding of the past and present.
