KOPPEL Curates - Textile Is Intelligent
Arts Council Funded
EMMANUEL BOATENG | DIVYA SHARMA
24 November - 15 December 2023
The Koppel Project proudly presents an exhibition that brings together the work of Emmanuel Boateng, a Ghanaian British artist, and Divya Sharma, a multi-disciplinary artist of Indian British descent.
This exhibition aims to highlight the crossovers between the processes and themes engaged by both artists. The common factor is textiles as a way of reimagining colonial legacies and identities through their practices. The exhibition also aims to showcase how, although the stories of both artists have different origin points, the works presented share the ideal of sparking exchanges between place, time, space, and the fragmented realities of the post-colonial present.
