For this project, the artist was interested in creating an artwork that speaks to Madagascar and India’s complex, and multiplicitous landscape of shared experiences, as well as to Joël’s own aesthetic interest in memory and nostalgia. The result is When the day belongs to the night, a triptych that is at once a monumental construction undergirded by intricate structures, a painting that experiments with fields of colour, and a tapestry that weaves together melancholia, remembrances, and personal narratives.
