From 16 June to 17 September 2023 at the HAB Galerie
Freely moving from one technique to another, Barthélémy Toguo explores drawing, painting, ink, watercolour, engraving, sculpture, installation, video and performance. As an insatiable traveller who studies current events without any cultural or geographic limits, he feels concerned with the inequalities and crises that the entire planet must face.
Barthélémy Toguo was born in 1967, in Cameroon, then moved to Europe in the early 1990s, where he became a French citizen. He has remained deeply rooted in his native country, where he created Bandjoun Station : a residence welcoming artists and researchers from around the world.
Associate curators for the exhibition: Androula Michael, art historian and Marie Dupas, project manager for Le Voyage à Nantes.
Le Voyage à Nantes would particularly like to thank Galerie Lelong &Co (Paris) and Nosbaum Reding (Luxembourg) for loaning out their works, Jean-Pierre Fotso and Carine Dudje, Bandjoun Station, Innocent Choutedjem, Folcam Hilaire, as well as Boutin Services for lending the glass bottles used in the Road to Exile installation.

At the Château des ducs de Bretagne from 13 May to 12 November
While his works dialogue with the Musée d’histoire de Nantes’ collection in the Château des Ducs de Bretagne for Expression(s) décoloniales(s) #3, this exhibition at the HAB Galerie offers a chance to (re)discover the powerful beauty of an oeuvre that continually expresses the artist’s commitment to being in the world.More information
