Currently there are two exhibitions at the ASCL:
Exhibition on the Third floor: Photos on Senegal by Loïs Diallo
Loïs Diallo's photo exhibition is inspired by the beauty of Senegal. The first time she visited Senegal, in particular the Island of Gorée in 2010, she was deeply impressed by the country and its inhabitants. She thinks Senegalese people show that richness has nothing to do with what you own.
Loïs Diallo - writer and photographer
After a legal career and several years of art and culture studies, Loïs started a new career in 1998 when she became a freelance writer and photographer. Loïs' greatest talent is watching, observing, considering, describing creatively and taking catchy pictures. In addition to this, traveling and making travel reports is her favorite pastime. Her book on the Peul, the Lebou and the Jola will appear soon.
Most of the photos (30x45 cm) are for sale: € 125,- (without frame).
For more information, visit her website or contact her by mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
The exhibition can be seen during office hours from 1 July until 30 September 2016 in the corridors on the third floor of the Pieter de la Court building.
Exhibition in the ASCL Library: African portraits in weaving
The ASCL Library is pleased to exhibit a series of hand-made weavings of African portraits, made by Celine Michel.
The weavings are partly inspired by pictures she took in Burkina Faso where she used to live as a child and which sparked her fascination with the African continent. She explains her way of working: "First I make an oil-painting of one of my pictures. Then I start to weave and use the paintings as a source of inspiration. Each weaving piece takes about 50 hours."
The colourful weavings as well as two of Celine Michel's paintings can be admired in the ASCL Library during opening hours. Feel free to come and take a look!
