    While African art is essentially figurative, it does sometimes tend towards a form of abstraction. This may happen through subtractions, which push stylization towards a complete purity of line, or on the other hand through saturation, which drowns the sculpture under an accumulation of materials or various objects that finally obscure it. This exhibition is dedicated to exploring a confrontation between these two contrasting aesthetic approaches and moreover reveals interesting parallels with major modern and contemporary Western art forms.
