Tilo Koto

Yancouba Badji

For Yancouba Badji, from Casamance, Senegal, the dream of Europe ended brutally in the south of Tunisia, after having attempted to cross the Mediterranean from the coast of Libya. A one-and-a-half-year "adventure" during which he almost lost his life many times. "TILO KOTO" is the story of a man whose flesh and soul was burnt by a hellish journey, which he sublimated through painting. This poignant work combats ignorance and silence, and highlights the hell that thousands of people are currently living through.
