Evariste Maïga is a trans-disciplinary artist based in Geneva, working with a broad range of media including video, photography, installation, print, drawing and text.
Taking inspiration from daily encounters, anecdotes and the peripheral, his work explores topics such as inherent potential, visibility, singularity and acting in a broad sense. Simple gestures, performativity and humour tend to influence the aesthetic and the analytical processes that occur in Maïga’s work. During the past few years Maïga has particularly explored our relation to food found in African culture and its visual presence in popular Western culture.
Evariste Maïga has exhibited internationally, among others at The Liverpool Biennale, The Institute of Contemporary Art, London — Bloomberg New Contemporaries — Art Night, London — Off Course Art Fair, Brussels — the 4th Thessaloniki Biennale, Greece — The Cooper Gallery, Scotland.
