Benin, Ouidah, 2018
Men and women of different denominations are gathering in the market square in Ouidah, Benin (West Africa) to embroider a red circular cloak made of heavy linen with their own designs turning it into a social painting. They are addressing what in their view is worthy of protection.All participants are wearing outfits that match the same ochre yellow color of the embroidery yarn. The population is invited to commission their own wishes like protection of their own children, animals or nature.
