Christelle Oyiri: Venom Voyage
Nov 8 – Dec 8, 2023
gta exhibitions, ETH Zurich
Zürich, Switzerland

For her show at gta exhibitions, ETH Zurich, Oyiri explores themes of colonial alienation and alternative temporalities. A newly produced group of works highlights the discrepancy between the image of Guadeloupe and Martinique as idyllic holiday destinations and the reality the two islands face today – the contamination of soil and water due to pesticides used in farming, leading to severe health issues, most notably cancer. The artist approaches the subject through the lens of her own personal involvement: her childhood memories of happy holidays in her native country embroiled with what she faces returning as an adult today. In VENOM VOYAGE, an immersive installation reminiscent of a travel agency, we are lured by familiar images of adventure, fun and relaxation, only to be confronted with the clash between the reality of toxic, colonized landscapes and our distorted imaginary of them. Curated with Simon Gérard.
