Babenga – The Sacred Forest Opening Reception

Thursday, May 16, 6 p.m.

Join us on May 16 for the opening of Babenga – The Sacred Forest featuring the works of Jean Michel Dissake.

Dissake’s sculptural works use found and recycled materials to represent a balance between nature and technology by weaving natural objects such as wood, vines, termite dust, water hyacinths, and palm fronds together with computer boards, aluminum wire, license plates, and car parts. Informed by his cultural heritage as well as wisdom gained from living for nine years in the forest on the Mungo River, Dissake’s work invokes a dialogue on ecological and spiritual matters and speaks to timely issues of unity, peace, love, and oneness with nature. This exhibition is co-curated by Marriott Sheldon and Roger Manley. Come enjoy hors d’oeuvres, beautiful art and community.
