About The Speaker
Polymath artist, architect, curator and art director, Pierre-Christophe Gam trained as an interior architect at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and Central St. Martins in London. In his artistic practice Pierre-Christophe is interested in evaluating how current social and political changes in Africa and the diaspora negotiate with past intellectual and visual heritage. Using photography, collage, drawing and digital manipulation, he creates ambiguous yet compelling compositions where deep cultural references are mixed-up and juxtaposed in a rich and intricate tapestry. Beyond the visual seduction of his work, Pierre-Christophe questions complex and deeply rooted narratives at the core of the global African cultural experience.
