    DESCRIPTION

    Saïdou Dicko was born in Burkina Faso in 1979. He lives and works in Paris, France and is a self-taught visual artist (photographer, videographer, installer and painter). At the age of five, Dicko, a Fulani Shepherd, learns to draw by collecting shadows of his sheep on the Sahel soils. Naturally, the shadow is present in all of his work. In 2005, he embarked on photography. Six months after his photographic debut, he presents his first exhibition in the 2006 Dakar Biennial Off, where he won a prize, the first in a long series.

    Through painting, photography, video or installations, Dicko transforms the representation of forms giving life to visual phenomena, to physical and psychological events of light, uniting the two extreme values ​​that are at the heart of black and white contrast. He finds pleasure in bringing together the opposites to talk to us about equality, union, maternal love, freedom and humanity.
