Summary :
Interviews with Amahiguere Dolo

Amahiguere Dolo, during our four meetings in September 2002 and February 2004, talked about the Dogon cosmogony and of his complex relation as a sculptor artist with the occident. The editing of the movie respects the chronology (from Ségou to Mali) of the encounters with the dogon artist. The screen is, during all the video movie, physically busy with Amahiguere Dolo and his initiating words. This project is the subject of the making of a video series, going on in the future, enriched with encounters and interviews.

At the Mali, in summer 2002, I started to carry out portraits : artists, gallery managers, art students… I realized that a form should be found to the words I was hearing over there. These words had been stolen, deviated, caricatured… this way reproducing behaviours of authority and submission of which we know well the negative extensions. A fix shot and a minimal sound recording, with a mike and a sober editing. This is derisory, but, actually, the essential is there. I am convinced I have took the right decision. This constraint became a positive asset.
