Concerning the Internal
Circle Art Gallery, 26 March – 19 April 2015
The first exhibition at Circle Art Gallery gives space to a group of 20 artists chosen for their diverse interrogation of profoundly individual, internal concerns. Concerning the Internal features video, installation, painting and drawing that communicate each artist’s innermost thoughts, experiences or desires.
Broader narratives about shared human experiences are counter-balanced by intimate, personal stories. What brings the work together is its ability to draw the viewer into a reflective space, and allow insights into the artists’ most personal concerns.
Artists: Dawit Abebe, Maral Bolouri, Delphine Buysse, Rehema Chachage, Eltayeb Dawelbait, Naomi Wanjiku Gakunga, Diana Kamara, Wambui Kamiru, Zihan Kassam, Jackie Karuti III, Wanja Kimani Miriam Syowia Kyambi, Ato Malinda, Sibylla Martin, Kerttu Maukonen, Paul Onditi, Souad Abdel Rasoul, Ephrem Solomon, Xavier Verhoest, Beatrice Wanjiku
