FRIEZE LONDON 2020: VIEWING ROOM

 

ZINA SARO-WIWA

 

Tiwani Contemporary is pleased to present new photography and video by Los Angeles-based artist Zina Saro-Wiwa for Frieze London Viewing Room 2020. Showing for the first time at an art fair since a solo booth at Art Basel Miami in 2018, the artist presents work which explores emotional and psychological landscapes, African masquerade culture and spiritual ecosystems. Probing the subcutaneous layers of environmentalism, these works look at the psychosocial and cultural value of African forests. Saro-Wiwa also premieres a new three-channel film shot on location during lockdown across multiple sites in Ogoniland, Nigeria, Africa. 

 

Across moving image, photography, performance and installation, the artist's work draws on ritual, food and folklore to explore decolonised notions of environment and environmentalism. Mapping mystical intimacies between people and the land belongs to an ongoing interest in emotional and psychic landscapes. In the past, she has explored the visible and unseen cultures of the Niger Delta offering a radically distinct and generative re-engagement of this biodiverse region in Nigeria that faces continuing deforestation and degradation.
