Catalog created for the exhibition “Maïmouna Guerresi. Spirit / Soul”, by Silvia Cirelli, Yards of Image, Milan, 14 November 2019 – 18 January 2020.

"Italian by birth but Senegalese by adoption, Maïmouna accompanies us in a visionary world that crosses the complexities of identity syncretism, creating an allusive dialogue between European and African culture. Thanks to a multifaceted approach of clear emotional resonance, the artist invites us to discover a middle ground, an apparent place, where the usual structural barriers are overturned, to give way to an intimate dimension that mixes personal ingredients with testimonies of reality. […]
Suspended between figuration and immateriality, the artist's monumental subjects emphasize a spiritual metamorphosis that fully captures the urgency of this inner awareness and through mystical references and thaumaturgical metaphors, reveals its true essence.
Gestures, chromatism, choice of clothes - strictly handmade by the artist, as the Sufi tradition dictates - or scenarios, in fact they build a decoded universe. This seductive creative process is easily discernible in the complex aesthetic structure, that is projected into an allegorical virtuosity full of allusions ".
