Gaëlle Étémé


I am a metaphysician and a calligrapher. I am passionate about emptiness in philosophy and art, exploring how the dynamics of the Wonderful as the unfathomable character of life can unfold as a protocol for exploring the meaning and origin of manifestation. The way I perceive the world is an enchantment rooted in the world of African fable that I grew up with in Cameroon and the syncretisms I operate with my influences of Zen painting and alphabet aesthetics. This allows me to generate a cosmos of manifestations allowing me to illustrate sketches of the flesh of the world as a logic of the advent of the void. I am currently pursuing a doctorate in research-creation at the University of Sherbrooke.
