The French Institute of Tunisia (IFT) is hosting on October 25-November 6 Dany Laferrière’s Un coeur nomade exhibition, organised at the initiative of Canada’s embassy to Tunisia and in partnership with the IFT.
Staged in partnership with “Quartier des Spectacle,” this exhibition is made up of seven different parts and uses words, pictures and sound to tell the story of this artist’s life and career.
From his Haitian childhood to the Académie Française in Paris, Un coeur nomade is an invitation to enter the world of this multitalented man, and follow the course of a lifetime of exile, women and words.
The show is an open door onto his life through a series of graphic works, beginning with his sun-lit childhood in Haiti, where his artistic sense first developed. Then, a precipitous departure for Montreal, the city of his fortunate exile where he became a writer, followed by a few seasons in Miami, another city that accompanied his life as an author. And then, Paris and the Académie Française, the traditional centre of the French language.
The show takes its inspiration from Laferrière’s three graphic novels. It is a complete and gentle immersion in the colours of the unique universe of the author and illustrator so admired by the different communities of Quebec.
