WEENDU: In pulaar language, the word ‘weendu’ symbolizes the body of water on the outskirts of the village where women gather to wash clothes, and girls and boys refresh and purify themselves after the rites of passage from childhood to adulthood. It is a significant meeting place that plays a vital role in the social and cultural life of the village.
WEENDU strives to showcase the same sense of harmony and community in all of its pieces, exuding a richness of design, contemporary art and culture that seamlessly incorporate a myriad of styles across Africa and its Diaspora.
WEENDU STUDIO’s mission is to represent and foster the career of artists from Africa and the Diaspora. Weendu Studio aims to be the ‘lieu commun’ that Edouard Glissant defines as "The place where each time a thought of the world calls and illuminates another thought of the world.”
