“Original Zéké” danced paintings is a pictorial laboratory. It is developed in Benin, the birth land of voodoo, during an artist residency at the Zinzou Fondation in the port town of Ouidah. This laboratory creates interactions between the local dances and the paintings, according to an artistic ritual conceived in resonance with the place. After been framed, the large format canvases receive local pigments and oils. They are then moved by children and forms appear in the blending of colours. Once the paintings are danced, pigments are still evolving and the wooden frame still impregnates the canvas with its black colour. The paintings are then exposed for weeks in a garden, to the sun, the rain and the wind.
