INTRODUCING Smail Kanoute

INTRODUCING Smail Kanoute

Smail Kanouté trained in printmaking and dance at the prestigious National School of Decorative Arts in Paris. His work gravitates around writing and uses the expressive power of movement as a visual language : body-brush, calligraphy, memory, ancestors, whirling dervishes, tributes to the sacred gesture, to the symbolism of our breath.

In this interview he tells us more about his poetic, critical, cross-disciplinary pieces that combine dance, printmaking, film, fashion, music with our cities. Among other things, he is inspired by Malian music (the traditional instrument ‘kora’), the wisdom of Amadou Hampâté Bâ’s oral literature, of Paulo Coelho’s stories.

A white space. The morning light has just passed. Atmospheric sounds of Brian Eno’s New Space Music fill the room. The sound of boiling water. Hajime Mizutani, a current Kuenstlerhaus Bethanien resident, welcomes me to his studio and invites me to a Japanese oolong tea. His studio is very clean. There are no brushes, no paint stains or any traces of creative artist chaos.
