Catalogue of a group exhibition mounted from the FRAC Réunion collection around identity issues such as racial, social or sexual constructions.
"Alongside many texts that silently echo this awareness (Senghor, Césaire, Haraway, Dorlin, Vergès), new images and new voices resonate in contemporary artistic practices, they place the body and the gaze at the center of the politics of representation. Nouvelles icônes, effigies de sel et d'or is a way of paying homage to the diversity of the world."
