kó presents aN exhibition featuring EVA OBODO AND NGOZI-OMEJE EZEMA, WHOSE SCULPTURES, MIXED MEDIA AND INSTALLATION EMBRACE MATERIALITY AND EXPERIMENTAL PROCESSES.
Eva Obodo focuses on fibre and charcoal as conceptual mediums, creating relief paintings and free standing sculptures that are created from processes of wrapping, tying and bundling. Incorporating discarded materials such as charcoal and jute fibre, Obodo creates visual narratives that evoke the complex socio-political and economic structures that frame contemporary culture.
Ngozi-Omeje Ezema is a ceramic artist who creates immersive installations with suspended pieces of terracotta. Taking her personal experiences as a point of departure, her work addresses issues relating to identity, family and the female body. She often references the object of the vessel in various ways, taking inspiration from the forms and materials of the natural environment.
kó will present this exhibition 21 January- 6 February 2021.
