Otobong Nkanga in conversation with Marcella Beccaria

September 24, 2021 from 06:00PM to 07:00PM

On 24 September at 6 pm, Castello di Rivoli hosts a conversation between the artist Otobong Nkanga and Chief Curator Marcella Beccaria on the occasion of the opening Of Cords Curling around Mountains, a personal exhibition dedicated to the artist.

The exhibition is conceived as a large site-specific project, designed for the galleries of the Castello. Designing an unprecedented landscape, the installation includes large irregularly-shaped rugs inspired by minerals, such as quartz and malachite, whose healing properties have been known since ancient times. Long hand-woven cords will culminate in sculptural objects and elements, both organic and handcrafted, endowing the work with a performative and relational component.

The exhibition is part of a collaboration project with the Center National d’Art Contemporain in Villa Arson, Nice which, from June 12, will present the first solo exhibition in France dedicated to the artist.

The conversation will also be live streamed on the Museum  YouTube channel.
