1:54 Contemporary African Artfair London 2016

06 Oct 2016 - 09 Oct 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.
