Ibrahim Mahama, Fragments

20.03.17  This exhibition is at the White Cube Gallery, Bermondsey until April 13th.  It consists of several large fabric structures made from jute cocoa bean sacks, an 10 minute video on large screen and a sculptural piece made from shoeshine boxes and items from that trade.

“In these new bodies of work Mahama explores time and transference, privation and potential, as embodied through objects, materials and the traces left in their wake. As he explains, ‘the hope is that their residues – stained, broken and abandoned, but bearing light – might lead us into new possibilities and spaces beyond.”
