Hervé Télémaque: A Hopscotch of the Mind

Author: McKee, C.C.

Source: Serpentine Galleries, April 2022

Type of Publication: Chapter in a Book, Exhibition Catalogue

Description: This is one of the first major catalogues on Hervé Télémaque’s work to be published in English and includes newly-commissioned texts that trace Télémaque’s six decades of work through an art historical lens, while also providing new perspectives on his work that draw upon its literary, political, historical and theoretical underpinnings. Richly illustrated and designed by Zak Group, it includes contributions by C.C. McKee, Helen Marten, Lyonel Trouillot, Françoise Vergès, Sarah Wilson, and an interview between Hervé Télémaque and Serpentine Artistic Director Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Academic C.C. McKee draws on their specialism in the art and visual culture of the modern Atlantic world in order to read Télémaque’s work through a psychoanalytic lens and the context of Haitian art.
