Pokua's Place

Gideon Appah

Debut solo exhibition of Gideon Appah.

Selected by Nubuke Foundation’s newly appointed curator Bianca Ama Manu, Appah will be
presenting a body of textured and vivid mixed media artworks that pay homage to his grandmother (Pokua). The exhibition is a nostalgic tribute in memory of her, with the works
serving as a reminder of her place, space and legacy in his childhood and family.

Through an eclectic mix of sea blues, deep verdant landscapes and charcoal drawings,
Appah’s compositions illustrate his family’s shared experience of home. The artist has
collected not just ideas, but pieces of historical residential relics to assemble a memory of
his grandmother.

Launch night is 9 December at 7pm and the exhibition continues until 2 March 2018.

Nubuke Foundation is a visual art and cultural institution based in East Legon, Accra,
Ghana. Founded in 2006, it serves as a nexus for arts and culture across the country while
supporting the artistic practice of Ghanaians: young, mid-career and experienced. Curated by Bianca Ama Manu.
