    About the Artist

    The oil paintings of French artist Sylvie Vermandel, which the artist refers to as ‘jewel paintings,’ are simultaneously representational and symbolic, reflective of the beautiful natural world that surrounds us as well as the spirituality and light that underscores everything we experience. Rather than using a palette, Vermandel mixes her colors directly on the canvas in thin layers, creating varying contrasts so that the observer is able to attain new perspectives on the painting. She adds an entirely new dimension of light and texture by incorporating such elements as crystals, gold leaf and silver sequins into each piece. What results is a harmony of color, tone and light that celebrates the artist’s great love for Mother Earth and is designed to bring out the positive side of life through sy

    Tuesday, September 18
    at 8pm

    FIAF, Florence Gould Hall

    Presented in partnership with the Museum for African Art

    Dancer and choreographer Faustin Linyekula returns to Crossing the Line with a new solo work following his 2011 sold-out performances. In the raw and intimate Le Cargo, Faustin Linyekula examines his personal story within the context of his native Congo’s rich and tumultuous history. Infused with potent music and his powerful personal narrative, Faustin beautifully investigates his relationship with dance, the physical language through which he has told his country’s stories for a decade, as he searches for traces of this brutal history on his body.
