Our intentions, as a gallery and as a team, have always been to provide a platform that highlights and celebrates the narratives of and from the African continent and so, by hosting a group exhibition in August each year, our focus turns towards sharing the stories of woman and non-binary artists. This means turning towards conversations around the impact of gender, its definitions, and the constraints that shape and reflect society at large.

Mimouni El Houssaïne

2020-10-01T15:25:27+02:00

Mimouni El Houssaine lives and teaches fine art in Montpellier although he travels constantly between the two Mediterranean shores of Morocco and Europe. These constant coming and goings are reflected on his canvases in a game of symbols, spattered written texts and horizons in perspective. Mimouni's work weaves the intricate dialect of yearning for other shores, spurned on by the desire

Elsewhere - Hussein Salim Hussein Salim is no stranger to travel, finding new environments, adapting to new living spaces.

SOLO BOOTH C10 Nina Holmes The fear and embarrassment of obsolescence makes for a civilization that is not civil but instead one that is hardened to any body or thing that is deemed worthless and has thus become irrelevant to societal functioning. My current body of work deals largely with the notions of uselessness, irrelevance and invisibility surrounding both people and inanimate objects

Many artists have engaged with notions of permeability, transience and constraints in relation to borders but few have dealt with the impressions of borders and their bureaucratic ephemera as tangibly as Onyis Martin. Before Tomorrow Comes is a presentation of his latest body of work, as a solo exhibition at a Eclectica
