Curator Chika Okeke-Agulu and artist El Anatsui talk about the work of the ghanaian artist and the exhibition "El Anatsui: Triumphant Scale" at Haus der Kunst.
Haus der Kunst presente a major survey of the work of the acclaimed artist El Anatsui (*1944, Anyako, Ghana), perhaps Africa’s most prominent living artist. This survey is the largest ever mounted on Anatsui’s work and encompass every media in the artist’s prodigious fifty-year career. Along with his ambitious bottle-cap works, with their imposing physical presence and dazzling colors, the exhibition will also include wood sculptures and wall reliefs spanning the mid-1970s to the late 1990s; ceramic sculptures of the late 1970s; as well as drawings, prints, and books. In addition, Anatsui will create several new sculptures responding to the sweeping scale of the museum’s galleries, including a grand outdoor work on the building’s monumental façade.
