exhibition: Georges Adéagbo (Benin), The Defense..!
t/m Zaterdag 16 Juli 2016
Georges Adéagbo lives and works in Cotonou and Hamburg. He has been acclaimed as one of West Africa’s foremost artists ever since his contribution to Documenta in 2002 called, “The explorer and the explorers facing the history of Exploration. The World-Theater…!” . His installations have been exhibited in Europe, the two Americas, and even Japan, but remained virtually unknown in West Africa itself. He builds his installations up from artefacts, objects trouvés from everyday cultures, as well as from illustrations and sculptures that he orders from sign-painters and form wood-carvers.
