Cannibal Desire responds to the powerful pulsions, longings and fantasies of a violence from another time. In this project, the dimension of power defines an ambition which aims at multiplying new sensations and experiences, free of any hierarchy and form of control. The impetus of cannibal desire thus becomes, for the Caribbean artists, a state of consciousness, a way to consider the world.

Through selected paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs and videos, the curators Jean-Marc Hunt and Marie Vickles explore a poetic state of transe, similar to an unlimited fantasy with all sorts of possibilities. The exhibition Cannibal Desire was first shown in 2018 at the Fondation Clément in Martinique, focusing on emerging artists from Guadeloupe. Now travelling to Miami, the exhibition is expanding to artists from Martinique, French Guiana, Haiti, Mexico and Venezuela.
