The exhibition “Cô Vid”, composed of twenty paintings, can be visited from April 25 to May 31, 2022 in Lasserre, Morne-à-l’Eau.
Friday, April 23 was a great day for Marylène Agat “Homme de Lumière” (Man of Light). Indeed, the artist organized the opening of her new painting exhibition entitled “Cô Vid”, (Corps Vide, in French ; Empty Body, in English), a theme inspired by the Covid-19 pandemic. In a future interview, Martinican plastic artist who has been living in Guadeloupe for many years will tell us more about the choice of this theme.
This Friday, the eve of the second round of the French presidential elections in the French Caribbean, nearly thirty people very close to the artist were present, unfortunately because of the health crisis that persists even if various restrictions have been lifted by the Prefecture, it was necessary to limit the number of guests.
That evening, it was also an opportunity for the public to discover the exhibition room that Marylène Agat has just built near her home in Lasserre in the town of Morne-à-l’Eau. In 2020, the artist who exhibited every two years at the Rémy Nainsouta Cultural Center in Pointe-à-Pitre had to cancel this major event with her fans because of the arrival of the coronavirus in the Guadeloupean archipelago. Moreover, as we had announced in a previous article, all the rooms in Pointe-à-Pitre are currently provided for payment.
So, since it’s always best to see for yourself, for the opening of her new space, the plastic artist proposed to her guests to discover her creations according to a very original scenography. Indeed, on a beautiful starry night, several paintings hung outside in the garden led the visitors to the exhibition room. After a word of welcome from Marylène Agat, the public continued to discover the works and exchange with the plastic artist who had prepared a buffet with local ingredients…
