Gallery 1957 Yaw Owusu

Solo exhibition by Yaw Owusu who reflects on issues of political and economic independence.

Gallery 1957 is proud to present All that Glitters, a solo exhibition by Yaw Owusu.

Owusu reflects on issues of political and economic independence through repurposed pesewa coins used as medium and pallet.

Owusu creates sculptural installations that repurpose found objects, shifting the value of otherwise worthless materials into things of beauty. Built from countless pieces of loose change known as “pesewa” coins, his work activates urgent questions around economic and political independence in contemporary Ghana.
