For her exhibition at Palais de Tokyo, Dineo Seshee Bopape (born in 1981 in South Africa, lives in Johannesburg) has conceived an installation reflecting on feelings, psychic dissolution and weight of context. The video of the song “Feelings” performed by Nina Simone (1976, live in Montreux Jazz Festival) together with a consideration of Bessie Head’s novel, A question of power (1974), are the starting points of her research. Dineo Seshee Bopape explores with her installation the subjective question of affects by bringing together videos and depictions of pieces focused on the body engulfed by emotion in personal and in socio political contexts.
