Kenny Dunkan

Born in 1988, in Guadeloupe

Lives and works in Paris

Kenny Dunkan regulary draws on the visual culture of the Caribbean and in particular carnivals, periods of reversal of social, cultural and political roles, to develop a work that addresses the French colonial heritage and the persistence of its modes of representation. To do this, Dunkan often starts from his own black body which he stages through different media, from video to performance, sculpture or assembly.

Graduated from the École nationale des Arts DĂ©coratifs de Paris in 2014 with the congratulations of the jury, he won the ADAGP prize for Plastic Arts at the 2015 Salon de Montrouge. From 2016 to 2017, Kenny Dunkan was a former fellow of Villa MĂ©dicis, AcadĂ©mie de France in Rome. In 2018, he participated in the opening exhibition of Lafayette Anticipations in Paris. Two years later, he exhibited for the first time at the Galerie Les filles du calvaire in Paris. The same year, he integrates the collection of the CNAP with his installation “COSMOS” and becomes laureate of the first Reiffers Art Initiatives mentorship.
