I was invited last year to exhibit in the Island of Gorée, Dakar, Senegal as part of their yearly Festival "Regards sur cours". 2008 was also the Biennal of Dakar, "Dakar'art", and the artistes at Gorée where included in the OFF from the Biennal.
Gorée is a small island just facing Dakar and part of this big metropolis. There are no cars and bikes in the island and people take a ferry to get to work and back. A small pearl. But also known for being one of the places from where slaves departed to the Americas.

I made 18 small landscapes, 20 x 20 x 4 cm, acrylic on paper mounted on board. Those five were reserved before I departed to Dakar, so they travelled back and forth. They're now in Portugal as the person never came back for them.
