Rue Haute, 314

1000 Brussels


(Senegal, 1939-)

Seyni Awa has always contested ancestral prohibitions. She has displayed her eccentricity, her fantasies and the “evil” spirits inside her.  She makes fun of the rules and gives full rein to all her fantasies. In the yard in front of the house, she models her clay figures, half-women, half-monsters and produces other little laughing monsters. In a hole, the most rudimentary kiln imaginable, also in front of the house, she fires these creatures, which may reach up to one meter high.
