Gallery 1957 is proud to present an exhibition of new works by Ghanaian artist Yaw Owusu, marking the artist’s first solo exhibition. Through his socially engaged and visually rich practice, Owusu questions the failures of Ghana’s ongoing infrastructural development.

Owusu creates sculptural installations that repurpose found objects, shifting the value of otherwise worthless materials into things of beauty. Built from countless pieces of loose change known as “pesewa” coins, his work activates urgent questions around economic and political independence in contemporary Ghana.

The exhibtion runs until 15 August 2017.

Gallery 1957 is open Tuesday - Saturday, 11am - 7pm during exhibitions.
