Ebony/Curated Cape Town Franschhoek

Stanislaw Trzebinski

Ebony/Curated Cape Town is currently showing works by Kelechi Charles Nwaneri, a Nigerian-born mixed media artist. Titled Soliloquy, he explores through his introspective yet surreal lens, the intricate cultural landscape of his home- the vibrant city of Lagos- as it meets and merges with the multicultural influences of the world. His crafted and considered compositions thoughtfully position figures in captured scenes from his lived reality, initiating meaningful conversations on themes such as Social Values, History, Mental Health, and the delicate interplay between humanity and its environment.

A recurrent thematic element in Nwaneri’s body of work is the Black Hybrid Figure, a component that fosters new ways of being in the world- a conceptual freeing of oneself from historical ‘othering’. These hybrid figures traverse into the realm of spirituality, as Nwaneri reflects:

“A distinctive thread that weaves through my creations is the ‘Hybrid (Black) Figure,’ a concept rooted in the symbolism of scars and tribal marks. These figures bear a tapestry of symbols, prominently featuring Adinkra, Uli, and Nsibidi symbols, automatic lines, and Adire patterns.”

‘Soliloquy’, is the artist’s second solo exhibition with EBONY/CURATED currently on show in the Cape Town gallery.
