For her third solo exhibition at the October Gallery, visionary artist Nnenna Okore will explore the ephemerality of the natural world.
Born in 1975 in Australia, raised mainly in Nsukka, Nigeria. Nnenna Okore has emerged as one of the foremost artists of her generation. Working internationally, her largely abstract works are inspired by the textures, colours and landscapes of her local environment.
The Exhibition: Deeply disturbed by the effect humanity is having on its environment, the artist creates intricate and richly-textured sculptural interventions through repetitive, labour-intensive processes which reflect the processes of nature, and which speak of regeneration and renewal through the effort of human hands. When: 26 October – 2 December, 2017 Where: October Gallery (24 Old Gloucester St, Bloomsbury, London WC1N 3AL ) Tickets: FREE. For more info please visit the website.
