"Yaakaar" means "hope" in Wolof. Three emerging contemporary African artists question the future of their continent: Sandiry Niang (Senegal), Doff (Chad) and Gonçalo Mabunda (Mozambique).

Niang grew up in a family of 17 siblings and is concerned with the "social architecture" of a family: as a child he did not know the principle of privacy and it conditioned that he could not develop as an individual. In all his works you can find "the three observers".
Doff and Mabunda, both anti-war activists, environmental upcycling artists with a strong commitment to their country, both collect discarded material, especially cartridge cases from the wars, to create beautiful works of art and show the world that objects with such a difficult past inspire hope and joy.

The exhibition will take place at the Château Papillon Annexe, Kempinski St.Moritz, Adriano Bulgheroni Boutique.
