Opening – 5 March: 12-8pm
Sundy is delighted to present “Lamps”, a solo show by London based artist Emmanuel Awuni and the inaugural exhibition in the new gallery space in Vauxhall.
Emmanuel Awuni’s practice encompasses sculpture, painting and installations through which he re-imagines the structures that underlie our senses of hierarchy, space and time. Often informed by diasporic oral traditions, he explores the relationship between the non-hierarchical and non-linear sounds common in Hip Hop, Pidgin English and Patois and translates them into a textured visual language. Hip Hop and Rap become an analytical vehicle for the deconstruction and reconfiguration processes that constitute his work.
For his solo show “Lamps” at Sundy, Awuni will exhibit a series of sculptural pieces and paintings, giving each of the works the task to function like a lamp – to illuminate a path.
The exhibition is accompanied by a text by Fikayo Oloruntoba and a drawing by Gonçalo Neto.
