Alice Bourgeois

Painter, 1981, Paris, France

Drawing upon her maternal connection to Africa, she shares her memories and seeks to unveil its essence. Through her drawings, she embarks on a pilgrimage in search of idols, resurrecting what has been lost and resurfacing memories of an innocent and hopeful childhood. For her, the pursuit of origins and the creation of a visual memory through her paintings serve as a tangible way to give significance to memory. By participating in events such as the Dakar Biennale, Alice Bourgeois maintains her connection with Senegal as she continues to shape a fresh image of Africa—a continent alive with vibrant hues, dynamic movement, and meaningful communication. With each stroke, the Artist draws nearer to the essence of the Senegalese soul.
