Selected to revive the Marc Ladreit gallery in Lacharrière, French-Gabonese artist Myriam Mihindou unveils an innovative installation celebrating Punu culture through musical instruments and sound archives preserved in the museum . Through the work of ceramics, the arrangement of objects, sculptures, shapes, materials and sounds, as well as the interactions sparked with visitors, she creates a work that offers vision, listening and an experience sensory of its relationship with its own culture.

Myriam Mihindou pays tribute to the punu mourners, a group to which she belongs, true guides of souls accompanying the deceased to the afterlife and supporting the living in their mourning process. She re-examines an ancestral practice as well as the stories and myths that surround it, highlighting, through her plural, "total, performative, organic and corporeal" as she emphasizes, the cathartic virtue of the songs and tears of these women on the social and individual fabric.

This exhibition benefits from the support of Marc Ladreit de Lacharrière. The Marc Ladreit gallery in Lacharrière, inaugurated in 2021, offers each year, in its space dedicated to temporary exhibitions, a unique perspective on the history of non-Western arts. As such, the exhibition "Myriam Mihindou. Ilimb, the essence of crying" is supported by the Marc Ladreit de Lacharrière Fund for the knowledge and promotion of African and Oceanian civilizations.
