Thierry Oussou (Benin, 1988), is an emerging artist, exhibiting at Lumen Travo gallery for the first time. In 2014 he participated in residencies at Dokoutin, Brussels and in 2015 at Rijksakademie, Amsterdam. In his artistic practice he deals with questions about authenticity, history, heritage and visibility. He also reflects on the relationship between contemporary art and ethnographic objects in museums. For the exhibition "Works on Paper and Some Objects" he exhibits a series of drawings and masks that take inspiration from his African background.
