Two Ghanaian artists shine brightly at the ‘That Those Beings Be Not Being’ exhibition currently happening at Alpha Nova Galerie Futura in Berlin, Germany.
The exhibition features two Ghanaian and one Uganda artist.
Dorothy Akpene Amenuke (Ghana), Sheila Nakitende (Uganda), Theresah Ankomah (Ghana).
These ladies are making female artists worldwide so proud and inspiring more young females to pursue art in school.
The exhibition, which is scheduled for a month, opened on Friday, May 6, 2022 with a display of various artworks from the three artists with a magnificent turnout by patrons and art lovers from all walks of life.
As part of the exhibition, there will be an Artist Talk session on May 21, 2022, and other activities throughout the period until everything ends on May 28, 2022.
The works of Theresah Ankomah, Dorothy Amenuke, and Sheila Nakitende presented in this exhibition explore questions of transience and relationality in diverse and complicated ways, establishing themselves within this space of opacity, in which, according to Glissant, lies the radical potential to subvert systems of domination.
That which cannot be understood cannot be controlled. That which cannot be fixed to a singular meaning in consonance with a certain cognitive framework is free to roam and perpetuate its difference, producing a multiplicity of meanings.
