Apalazzogallery

28 Jan 201831 Mar 2018

On the occasion of his solo show, the artist presents an installation made by hundreds of shoemaker boxes and a group of new photographic works. “In Dependence” is borrowed from the title of Nigerian novelist Sarah Ldipo Manyinka’s book “In Dependence” 2008, set in Nigeria in the early 1960s. It combines both love and failure as a starting point towards rebuilding faith within a place amidst crisis and uncertainty.
Ibrahim Mahama
is interested in the parallel histories of post independent states at the period and their influence on the aesthetics of society, the transformation of objects and spaces they have once occupied or still occupy. The element of decay is used as a starting point of reflection and production.

Ibrahim Mahama, born in 1987 in Tamale (Ghana) lives and works in Accra, Tamale and Kumasi (Ghana)
