Goddy Leye‘s videos and installations tell stories that official histories are often unable to communicate. He studied painting in Cameroon under artist Pascal Kenfack. During 2001/02 Leye did a residency at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, and on his return set up ArtBakery, a Douala-based artist’s initiative.
