Romuald Hazoumé
"Wax Lolo" 2009


Hazoumé’s systematically modernized masks, latter-day versions composed of plastic bottles and other found objects come freighted with rebellious subtexts and overtones as well. Indeed, thus freed from their ritual and performance functions, they have become iconic emblems of Hazoumés drolly subversive take on the ongoing inequalities of exchange between Africa and the western world. (G.A. Houghton, Paris, 2009)
