Jean-David Nkot’s aesthetic research is devoted to question the notion and practices of violence in the contemporary globalized world. Looking for artistic forms to represent and locate these practices, Nkot’s work is confronted with material objects, such as stamps and maps. He shows their relationship with dominant structures and subverts their symbolic compositional structure. In Nkot’s work, on the one hand, the so-called ‘subaltern subjects’ dominate and take position in space. On the other hand, maps shape different spaces that include personal desires and the imagination of a new life in the future.

Abstract

Jean-David Nkot’s aesthetic research is devoted to question the notion and practices of violence in the contemporary globalized world. Looking for artistic forms to represent and locate these practices, Nkot’s work is confronted with material objects, such as stamps and maps. He shows their relationship with dominant structures and subverts their symbolic compositional structure. In Nkot’s work, on the one hand, the so-called ‘subaltern subjects’ dominate and take position in space. On the other hand, maps shape different spaces that include personal desires and the imagination of a new life in the future.
