Barry Ahmad Talib

residency, Konnektor

Part of the Konnektor-project

Originally from Guinea, Barry Ahmad Talib is currently active as a visual artist in Decoratelier Jozef Wouters and Globe Aroma, an open cultural house in Brussels. In collaboration with Decoratelier, Talib co-created the scenography for the exhibition ‘De Grond der Dingen / The Neverending Park’ in Museum Hof van Busleyden. Fascinated by the colour variations and transformations of trees in Europe, he designs colourful trees that exude a warm feeling. The logs are built out of wood, the vibrant leafs are fashioned from carpet. Talib also avidly draws the world around him.
During his summer residency Barry continues to work on his collection of artificial trees and engage them in a dialogue with the eclectic landscape. More info
