Lumen Travo Gallery participates in the yearly appointment at Art Rotterdam with the following artists: Otobong Nkanga, Atousa Bandeh, Jens Pfeifer and Thierry Oussou, also nominated for the NN Award.
Come and visit us at booth 24 to explore Otobong Nkanga's newest tapestry "Tied to the Other Side", which was woven according to Nkanga's specifications and drawings by the Tilburg Textile Lab on the recently purchased Dornier loom. This is a state-of-the-art loom that can handle complex patterns and structures and can weave rugs up to three and a half meters wide.
Iranian artist Atousa Bandeh will present a new series going by the title of "Without Reason or Proof". These works result from the quest for ephemeral moments of equilibrium and silence she has initiated during her daily observations.
Jens Pfeifer brings to Art Rotterdam a series of sculptural works, which revolve around the concept of transparency, offering the viewer an understanding of the interrelation between the different layers of information and knowledge between art, science and socio-politics, without revealing the mysterious sensation they comprise.
Thierry Oussou's multi-layered project "Equilibrium Wind" addresses the cotton plantations located in the district of Panouignan in Benin and the significant impact they have on the country's economic growth.
This on-going investigation will be exhibited in, both, the gallery booth and the NN Award section, for which prize Oussou has been nominated.
