Nomadism is central to the work of Pascale Marthine Tayou. Tayou’s notion of the artist as nomad is reminiscent of the Postmodernist sampler: he sees himself as a rolling stone, constantly in motion but, unlike the proverbial boulder, always accumulating parts of the places he passes through; never standing still yet productively gathering moss.
