北京赛车pk10黑客进入: ‘Labour of Many’ by Ibrahim Mahama at Norval

0
13 February 2019 to 11 August 2019


Ibrahim MahamaGhanaian artist Ibrahim Mahama uses the humble hessian sack in this major installation piece, the first of its kind in South Africa. For the installation Mahama uses the largest gallery at Norval, which stands at 9 metres high, and covers all of the surfaces in sacks, thus contrasting the humility of the materials with the monumentality of the space.

Mahama’s rigorous, socially engaged and process based practice brings to the fore Africa’s role in the global exchange of commodities while considering the movement of its people and how labour is valued. The sacks that he uses often bear the traces of previous owners, narrating a story about the exchange of goods and labour, and are connected to both local and global histories, histories that have conspired to create the present.

Mahama has exhibited across the world in many world-class galleries.
