(Rwanda, 1984-, lives in Belgium)
Aimé Bahati’s structures are carefully and meticulously built from materials recovered from here and there. The artist models his dreams in miniature. Carrying a physical handicap, he imagines means of locomotion, helicopters, planes, boats that would facilitate his movements and relieve his mother. He also invented luxurious villas with subtle and elegant decorations. Aimé Bahati fled Rwanda for Europe with his mother in 1995. He has been living and working in Liège since.
