Gallery SANAA is proud to present the first solo exhibition of Alex Mawimbi in the Netherlands. Alex Mawimbi will show several series of drawings in this exhibition: Drawings with African Objects, Peacock drawings, and Tree drawings series. The title of the solo is Self-Referential "'I have chosen this because my drawings are self-referential and although I am a black, African female artist, I find myself akin to the minimalist movement of the 1960's, which was largely self-referential." Mawimbi will also show sculptures for the first time. Furthermore the vidoes 'On fait ensemble' and 'The Warrior' will be screened.
