FIGARO JAPAN – アフリカのメティエダールと現在のデザイン展。

無料かつおもしろいのに、8月31日から9月5日と1週間もない短期間の展示だったのが残念! そう思わせたのはパリの装飾美術館で開催された『Bonne Arrivée (ボンナリヴェ)』である。スーパーマーケットの「Monoprix(モノプリ)」と「La Maison Château Rouge(ラ・メゾン・シャトー・ルージュ)」のコラボレーションを紹介した際に少し触れたけれど、これはアフリカのメティエダールとコンテンポラリーデザインを集めた展覧会だ。パンデミックの影響を受けたものもあるが、2020年はフランスにおけるアフリカ年なので去年から今年にかけてアフリカを巡る多くのイベントがフランス国内で催されている。これもそのひとつ。ラ・メゾン・シャトー・ルージュの創始者のユースフ&ママドゥ・フォファナ兄弟が2014年に始めた協会「Les Oiseraux Migrateurs(レゾワゾー・ミグラトゥール)」が企画したファッションとデザインをめぐるプロジェクトである。

ITC – The opportunities are here for SAFI KRÉATIONS

Safiatou Kone produced her own accessory creations before she started her education. Exploring her artistic drive, it has been a familiar way to earn some money on the side.

Seriously considering the creative industries as a major source of income was, however, not an option for the artist from Abidjan.

The economic value of the cultural and creative sectors in developing countries, such as art, handicraft, fashion and music is at times overlooked as a valuable source of income generation or driver of job creation – even though the ‘orange economy’ contributes to creating around 30 million jobs worldwide, according to the World Bank.
