Jean Michel Dissake

Jean Michel Dissake, artist from Cameroon, will be in residence at the Scrap Exchange Monday, Feb. 25 through Saturday, March 2.Jean Michel is an extraordinary artist who uses found and recycled materials to create sculptures that may include wood, vines, termite dust, fabric and other natural objects with wire, aluminum, computer parts and recycled materials. His concepts and message are a powerful message about unity, reconnecting with nature, finding a balance with nature and technology and “healing the Tree of Life.” Africa News calls Jean Michel‘s art “…new sculptural forms and an ecological discourse.” ‘Cameroun : des objets d’art à partir de matériaux récupérés’, Africa News 2017, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKXByMWtPDc Please feel free to come to the Scrap Exchange and meet Jean Michel during his residency!
