Minia Biabiany is the latest artist invited by curator Guillaume Désanges to exhibit at La Verrière, in the series “Matters of Concern | Matières à panser”. Biabiany reappropriates organic materials and traditional skills to evoke Caribbean women’s bodies as witnesses to the march of History. The subject is unquestionably a “matter of concern”, as post-colonial debate continues over paths to healing (“panser”). Here, it prompts a formal response of exceptional tact and delicacy. The artist’s poetic approach invites us to look afresh at these vitally important issues.
