Grada Kilomba, Illusions Vol. I and Vol. II

Grada Kilomba, Illusions Vol. I and Vol. II, 6 February – 24 March, 2019

Wilfried Lentz is pleased to present Illusions Vol. 1 and Vol. II, two installations shown in a sequence of 3 weeks, in a solo exhibition by interdisciplinary artist and writer Grada Kilomba (b. 1968 Lissabon (PT), lives and works in Berlin(DE)). The works we show are informed by the (suppressed) history of colonialism and its traumatic legacy for example expressed in daily racism in our society. In both works you will see a two-channel video installation, framed in an African tradition of story telling with elements of theatre, choreography and music. Illusions Vol. I and Vol. II, are using the classic myths of Narcissus and Echo, successively Oedipus.

The opening takes place on Thursday 7 February from 6–8pm and coincides with Patricia Kaersenhout’s show Objects of Love and Desire on the 2nd floor. The preview is a day earlier on the 6th of February.

Vol. I will run from the opening Thursday February 7th – March 3. Vol. II runs from March 4 till March 24, 2019. The gallery is open Friday through Sunday from 1pm–6pm and by appointment. For further information and visuals, contact the gallery: office@wilfriedlentz.com or +31(0)104126459.
