Romuald Hazoumè’s astute and sardonically political oeuvre is realised in a diverse range of media, including multi-media installation, sculpture, video, photography and painting. Using the ubiquitous plastic petrol can as his iconic signature, Hazoumè undertakes monumental installations that act as metaphors of African place, history and identity. Hazoumè’s work takes aim at complex subjects from political corruption to migration. In 2007, Hazoumè was awarded the Arnold Bode Prize at documenta 12, Kassel. Hazoumè’s work has been exhibited in major international galleries and museums across the globe including the British Museum, London; Le Centre Pompidou, Paris; ICP, New York; the Victoria & Albert Museum, London and the Louis Vuitton Foundation, Paris. Most recently Hazoumè was included in the exhibition From Africa to the Americas: Face-to-Face Picasso, Past and Present, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal (2018) and in the Kyotographie International Photography Festival, Kyoto (2018).
