Détail de l'événement

Tiwani Contemporary is pleased to announce The Turquoise Meat Inside, a solo exhibition of existing and new work by Zina Saro-Wiwa.

This exhibition furthers Saro-Wiwa’s interests in emotional landscapes, psychogeographies and invisible ecosystems, and develops her ongoing research into Niger Delta region of South-eastern Nigeria, the artist’s place of birth. Drawing on Nigerian food traditions, folklore and masquerade, the exhibition brings together works which examine and reimagine notions of environment and environmentalism.

Zina Saro-Wiwa (b. 1976, Port Harcourt, Nigeria) is a British-Nigerian, Brooklyn-based artist working in video, photography and installation. Recent exhibitions include the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (2018), Prospect New Orleans Triennale (2017/2018); Bamako Biennale (2017/2018); The Walther Collection, NY and Ulm (2016/17) and solo exhibitions at Krannert Museum (2016-17), IL and Blaffer Museum, TX (2015/16). In 2017, Saro-Wiwa was awarded a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship for Fine Arts. She is the founder of Boys’ Quarters Project Space, a contemporary art gallery that opened in 2014 in Port Harcourt, Nigeria
