Frantz Fanon is an installation of 23 photographs mapping the contours of postcolonial thinker Frantz Fanon's life, through a series of fleeting images, shadowy figures and ghostly apparitions.

7:30 - 9pm: Exhibition wine reception and book signing

'This series is based on Frantz Fanon; a Martinique born French-Algerian psychiatrist, philosopher, revolutionary and writer whose work is influential in the fields of post colonial studies. I felt it was important, at a point where Algeria is celebrating its fiftieth birthday, to consider the thoughts and life story of the author of “The Wretched of the Earth” (1961). His relation with Algeria, his position as one of the most important post-colonial thinkers, and finally the story of his journey as a human being.'
- Bruno Boudjelal
