Hamedine Kane (born in Ksar, Mauritania; lives in Brussels, Belgium, and in Dakar, Senegal) uses words and images to highlight the notions of exile, wandering, and movement. His intimate videos make migrants visible and audible and forge narratives about how they inhabit the world. Kane encourages encounter, welcome, and kindness by casting a poetic gaze at migrants’ resiliency. With his interest in the feelings, animosities, desires, loves, and conflicts that characterize how people relate to each other, he proposes to replace political time with living time.
