Cheikh Ndiaye

  • The work of Cheikh N’Diaye (b. 1970, Dakar, Senegal), currently based between Dakar, New York and Lyon, traverses painting, photography, film and installation to discuss the future of obsolete objects. The artist’s oeuvre focuses on the subjective perspective of social and architectural ruins and the potential for their repossession. The artist challenges perspectives through reconsidering dispossessed objects, places and ideas and reclaims their potential as a vessel, whose function can be redefined as it is needed in society. Having been influenced by his childhood in Senegal, N’Diaye’s work examines social codes of knowledge, weaving in Senegalese legends and myths, to interrogate the legacy and future of African intellectualism.
