Cosmo Whyte is a multidisciplinary artist who uses art as a means of exploring identities, taking into account how history, migrations, and transitory experiences shape individuals. Whyte blurs the boundaries of his practices, giving birth to these strange and fleeting forms. Bodies almost disappear in his works as a way of resisting the western light and its universe. The artist speaks about this magnificent but difficult dialogue between civilisations and their heritages. The idea is not to assert, but give free rein to reflection. ‘The existence of a nation does not necessarily imply the unanimity of its nationals around a given project at a given time,’ said Édouard Glissant. It is poets of the resistance who inspire Whyte’s work.
