Zohra Opoku presents Sassa at Gallery 1957
Gallery 1957 showcases another talented Ghanaian artist, Zohra Opoku, in their next exhibition.
Information from Gallery 1957 : Entitled, Sassa, Opoku draws on her month long stay residency in the Ashanti region of Ghana as well as her past portrait series, in order to explore cultural philosophies, trajectories, and aesthetics across the country. Currently based in Accra, and of German and Ghanaian descent, Opoku’s examination of textile culture considers fashion’s political, psychological and socio-cultural role in relation to both African history, and individualistic or societal identities. Opoku has previously exhibited at international institutions including the V&A, London, and the Guggenheim, Bilbao.
