Have We Met?
2007
installation
Video, Steel

Have We Met? is a installation with steel sculpture, video and sound. It includes gestural steel sculptures inspired by Malian masks, sculptures and ideograms and a video that presents four aspects of daily life in a remote village in northern Mali. Combining sculpture and video, Have We Met? presents images that are small, personal and human offering a realistic image of Africa that is nuanced and positive, countering persistent negative stereotypes.
