Last Friday, Dorothy, the owner an amazing Gallery, Dorothy’s gallary, in Paris invited the guianese organization Mo Isi, mo rot bo, which mean “I’m here and I’m on the other side”.
This was the occasion to discover French Guiana through a very detailed documentary. Maurice Tarcy, a Guianese painter also had an exhibition in the gallery. It was the occasion to chat about what led him to paint and some of his not so common techniques. He uses different types of materials to create relief on his paintings. Myrtho, the chef who prepared the Bami, the accras, the kalawang and other sources of happiness took the time to explain how, a male dancer CANNOT refuse the invitation from a Touloulou (the masked female dancer) during the carnival afterparty.
