Dak'Art - Biennale of Contemporary African Art. Dakar, Senegal.

May - June 2018


Collaboration with Wanja Kimani

supported by the British Council UK & Senegal, Hull 2017 & North Lincs Council.

Wanja Kimani's visual practice explores the fragility of memory, the imagination, loss and trauma. Through video, performance, and textiles, she imposes elements of her own stories into public spaces, creating a personal and collective narrative, where she is both author and character. 

With their collaboration at Dak'Arts, McCourt & Kimani wish to create cultural exchange through a piece of art that resonates with both the UK and Senegal in order to enable cross-cultural dialogue and contribute to ongoing conversations around migration, the concept of home and gender.

'The Agit'Art Laboratory is one of the oldest artists' collective in the world. It is regularly cited as one of the most influential artistic movements on the continent, which continues today to nurture and inspire a generation of young artists and creators. The members of Agit'Art are dispersed throughout the world and have been invited for this special project as part of the 2018 Dakar Biennale, a collaboration between the EUNIC Group and the Laboratory. 

In essence, the Laboratory develops collective, committed, civic and urban actions that echo the concerns and ambitions of the EUNIC Group, enjoying a notoriety and an experience hailed by all in this kind of artistic action since 1974.' Biennale de Dakar 2018 - PROJET Laboratoire AGIT’ART
