Je n’avalerai que mon liquide31 Oct 2020
The event is over
Alternating music and monologue, intimate thoughts and addressing the public head-on, the artist fantasises on the subject of a feminist France in which discrimination is a thing of the past. Probing issues such as the general public’s difficulties identifying queer or minority narratives, the artist explores different routes, from open-mindedness to withdrawal into oneself.

Je n’avalerai que mon liquide (I will swallow only my liquid) started out as a 4-part series of two exhibitions and two performances.
Ndayé Kouagou (1992, Montreuil, France) is a performance artist and composer who lives and works in the suburbs of Paris. His work mainly draws on texts he writes himself. Intentionally or unintentionally confusing, he strives as best he can to fuel thinking on three issues: legitimacy, freedom and love. He has exhibited his work in Auto Italia South East (London) and Lafayette Anticipations (Paris), where he also launched his publishing project YBR* (Young Black Romantics).
In 2020, he will show his work at Ariel Feminisms in Copenhagen and the gallery Nir Altman in Munich. In 2021, he will be taking part in the Athens Biennale.
