Jute coal sacks
72 x 38 inches (182.88 x 91.44 cm)
Ibrahim Mahama’s epicly-scaled installations piece together discarded jute sacks. Originally used by the Ghana Cocoa Board for coffee export, these sacks are commonly repurposed by local vendors for charcoal. In Untitled, stamps, marks, and tears reveal the artwork’s many previous lives and create a new possibility for it in the realm of art.
One of the most compelling contemporary African artists today, Ghanaian Ibrahim Mahama was recently featured in Saatchi Gallery’s Pangaea exhibition, Ellis King's immersive Civil Occupation and has been selected to participate in this year’s edition of the Venice Biennale curated by Okwui Enwezor.
