Georges Adéagbo creates site-specific installations where news cuttings, posters, books, postcards, clothes and his own handwritten texts are interwoven with sculptures and paintings from Benin into complex three-dimensional collages.

Adéagbo’s work has been shown internationally since the 1990s, and especially since his participation in the Venice Biennale in 1999. He bases his work on the city that has invited him, exploring and examining its architecture, history, culture and the myriad of other aspects that make up the identity of a place. Through chains of association, autobiographical references and cultural translation he creates what has been called an ‘archaeology of knowledge’, giving rise to new narratives.

Opening: Friday, May 2, 6 – 9 pm Galerie Wien Lukatsch, Berlin, Germany.

Another exhibition will be shown at Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden, June 28 – September 7, 2014
