Project Impossible in Nothing, 2016-2018

a talk by Thierry Oussou (artist)

In this project Thierry Oussou explores archeological methodology and speculative strategies in order to make a contemporary art work. Working with archeology and history students in Allada, Benin, he excavated a reproduction of a throne belonging to king Béhanzin. The monarch died in 1906 fighting the colonization of Benin. The original throne was then taken to France.
