Triennial in Milan in 2019. The book is published by Kunsthalle Praha and the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague.

Joël Andrianomearisoa (*1977)
Lives and works between Paris and Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar. He is turns visual artist, scenographer, poet. As a “total artist” he is sensitive to the essence of space. It is only after gaining a physical awareness of a city, its architecture, its energy, that he can begin to elaborate a story. Within the given spaces and times, he then imagines sequences and itineraries and fills them with artworks, movements, texts, and, most importantly, emotions. As a multicultural artist he assembles, combines and interprets textures and texts from here and elsewhere, creating a protean, polyphonic work. Read more

What brings all of this together? My dedication to building communities and developing the eco-system for artists and audiences. This commitment is most evident in my work at the Delfina Foundation.
