Partage (Partage, from the French word meaning “to share,”) acts as a platform of exchange between contemporary artists both locally and internationally, and between artists working in the contemporary arts and the public, creating an increase in both the audience and the market for contemporary art as well as promoting contemporary art in Mauritius and in the region. My tools I brought from Iceland to Partage in Mauritius were shark meat and volcanic ash. During the sea voyage I was recording (ash paintings) the vibration of waves, wind, particularly the movement of floating. While mission, unexpected boat appeared and shark meat was divided among the crew.
