Past Exhibition Information

Jan. 26, 2022 - March 6, 2022

Gallery 8

Tiwani Contemporary

A solo exhibition by the American artist, who's polymorphic practice draws references from popular culture, modern art and African folklore.

By exploring themes related to colonialism, archaeology and space exploration, the artist brings together antagonistic universes, which come to life in a sensitive time and space.

Everything Go Scatter unfolds the artist's dystopian world in a new series of works on canvas and drawings. It depicts a fantastic universe, where interstellar jousts, featuring animals, exoskeletons and spirits, alternate with ritual dances in a syncretism that testifies to the artist's overflowing imagination.
