1:54 Contemporary African Artfair London 2016 (Oct. 6, 2016)
Large scale paintings, works on paper and books from two major new projects by Soly Cisse and Pelagie Gbaguidi will be exhibited in a curated booth.
Sulger-Buel Lovell will present Soly Cisse's newest paintings as well as four books from his Black Book project, shown here for the first time. These he describes as being "like a treasure, a hidden secret". Created when he was forced to work within the confines of his hospital bed, they are artist books containing 25-27 original collages in each.
Exhibiting alongside him in the booth is Benin artist Pelagie Gbaguidi. Her new project, El Mundo Sans le Corps, consisting of 8 large paintings and 73 drawings, will be on exhibition across two spaces - the gallery and booth at 1:54.
