Catalogue Note

Born in Australia in 1975, Nnenna Okore splits her time between Nigeria and the United States. Inspired by the world around her and particularly interested in varieties of texture and colour, the artist uses found objects to create her oeuvres. Using labour-intensive techniques such as twisting and weaving, Okore creates intricate and transformative works that celebrate organic forms. Studying sculpture under the tutelage of El Anatsui, the links between these two artists are evident.
