"hold it together", yvette hess, 2018. mixed media 75.5cm x 57.5cm
www.yvettehess.com
i feel the pressure to hold it together. hold everything together. to nurture. hold space for the pain, the ash, of others. i feel the pressure to be the ashtray. i also know that the world would be dirtier if there was no ashtray. i should be grateful for purpose, no?

hold your pose, dear girl. hold the space for those who still need to rise.

Art by JOHN MADU, on display in his ongoing exhibition Identity Tones.
.
.
John Madu is a multi-disciplinary artist, whose paintings and art pieces overlap between art and design. Through personal iconographic symbols with allegorical metaphors, texture, indigenous patterns and colours, his paintings instigate the development of new modes of critical practice.
His most recent subject matter dwells along the lines of the effect of globalization and the African identity.  This, he relays through portraiture, figurative symbolism, mixed media, and collage. “The spread of popular culture via the internet and social media has created an increase in cross cultural contacts which is a good thing, but original cultural practices can be lost in the process such as with traditional music, and a decrease in the uniqueness of once isolated communities.

Still remember the first time I saw  work of Sammy Baloji. It was during Art Brussels in May 2015 at the booth of Galerie Imane Fares and the images of 'memoire/kolwezi' left a lasting impression on me. So what a pleasure to see his 1st solo exhibition 'A Blueprint for Toads and Snakes' in Amsterdam at Framer Framed. The theatre play of Joseph Kiwele, 'Chura na Nyoka' written in 1957 is recreated by Sammy Baloji. The message of segregation under colonial rule in Congo was beautifully packaged by the writer in a story of 2 animals, the toad and the snake, who are not able to maintain a friendship because of their biological differences. The blue map of the mining town show the design of division in all detail. Curated by Vincent van Velzen.

An honour to be showing works by Phyllis Galembo in our upcoming exhibition, 'Out of the Whirlwind's Radiance', opening this Thursday.
. . . . .
Over the last thirty years, American artist Phyllis Galembo has been investigating the transformative power of full-body masquerade in Africa and its diaspora through her portrait photography. Through the systematic placement of her richly costumed sitters in front of neutral backgrounds such as painted walls and trees, the resulting sumptuous photographs are both revelatory and celebratory. The titles of the works ‘Mami Wata’ and ‘Lasirene’ are different names for the mermaid spirit prominent across Central - West Africa and Haiti respectively. These pieces demonstrate the co-evolution of religion and culture in West Africa and the Caribbean, and the importance of masquerade on both sides of the Atlantic.
. . .
Exhibition: 23rd August - 29th September
Private View: 13th September 6 - 8.30pm
