Pascale Marthine Tayou

b. 1967, Cameroon

Pascale Marthine Tayou was born in Yaoundé (Cameroon) in 1967. He began his career as an artist in the 1990s, when he changed his name, taking a double name in the female form: Pascal(e) Marthin(e). Exhibitions in Cameroon were soon followed by shows in Germany, France and Belgium, the country where he currently lives.

His work is deliberately mobile, elusive of pre-established schema, heterogeneous. It is always closely linked to the idea of travel and of coming into contact with what is other to self, and is so spontaneous that it almost seems casual. The objects, sculptures, installations, drawings and videos produced by Tayou have a recurrent feature in common: they dwell upon an individual moving through the world and exploring the issue of the global village.
