Barthélémy Toguo is a traveller, crossing boundaries of all sorts as his vision evolves. His travels are not just physical – though he has been to many places – but are also concerned with crossing the various borders, barriers and boundaries that human beings construct in their minds. He uses watercolour painting, photography, sculpture, installation, theatre and performance to try to explain to himself and to his audience the spectrum of human triumphs and tragedies he has encountered.
