Ceramics, Textiles and Works on Paper
Please join us for the Private View of Mawuena Kattah's first solo exhibition at Tenderbooks
Thursday 7th July, 6-8pm
8 - 30 July 2016
Tuesday - Saturday, 11am - 6pm
This new body of work by Kattah incorporates bold textile design, large scale ceramics and intimate works on paper to create an immersive display at Tenderbooks. Drawn from an extensive personal archive of family photographs taken in Ghana, and new studio photographs of family taken in London, Kattah's work brings people and pattern together in complex, vibrant compositions.
Kattah will transform the downstairs space and display windows at Tenderbooks with bolts of her silk and cotton fabrics, bespoke furniture, vivid pictorial ceramic vessels, a ceramic tile frieze, and small works on paper.
Throughout the exhibition, Kattah will be at Tenderbooks working on her new artists' book, to be shared later this year in an event at the Victoria and Albert Museum, alongside new film works documenting her varied explorations of print, pattern and portraiture. Mawuena Kattah is a member of the London-based art collective Intoart.
