At PhotoAccess, Senegalese artist Babacar Traore creates re-worked snapshots to tell the story of the ‘Buukukat’. This creative figure constructs waste, rescuing it from certain death.
The “Buujukat” rummages through the inner lives through the traces of what is left. It is a person of a creative intelligence who reconstructs a discarded material destined for death
In giving life, rather, survival, the “Buujukat” reintroduces trash to the mouth of good conscious and terrifies society of consumption that throws away everything.
Trash is gold for “Buujukat”, a jeweller with his anvil between his hands, who transforms our waste and proposes something new
