Also Known As Africa (AKAA) 2019: Tegene Kunbi and Osborne Macharia | Booth A1

9 - 11 November 2019

Bridging together the real and the imagined, the two artists utilize their materials to blur the line between the real and the imagined landscape and future. Osborne Macharia’s afrofuturist photographs depict real people in imagined lifestyles, repurposing post-colonial African narrative and celebrating the complexities of identities within the continent and its diaspora. Tegene Kunbi’s abstract paintings depict seemingly flattened landscapes, whilst upon closer inspection, reveal the layers that allow forms to be seen, with the canvas acting as a window into new terrains.
