Nnena Kalu’s colourful sculptures are created by layering and binding materials such as industrial plastic tubing, newspaper, foam, cling film, fabric and tape. Kalu will construct a series of large-scale sculptures which playfully wrap around the gallery, responding to the unique architecture of the Project Space.
Visitors are invited to experience Nnena’s energetic creative process, which is shared through a performance-like activation of the works during the initial few days of the exhibition.
Nnena Kalu is a studio artist at ActionSpace, a London based visual arts organisation that supports artists with learning disabilities.
Live install: 30 October – 5 November, 10am – 6pm – Public can visit space to view work in progress.
Exhibition dates: Wednesday 6 November – Sunday 8 December
