Pierre Mukeba: Amri Kumi

August 12 - September 10

Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery presents Amri Kumi, an exhibition of new textile works by Pierre Mukeba. Set at an energetic pace, the rhythmic pulse of bold portraits transforms the Ten Commandments (“Amri Kumi” in Swahili) into present day stories of African culture. Within an anachronistic storyboard, Mukeba’s characters are brought to life by the artist’s acute technical dexterity, allowing intense emotional states to capture acts of religious sin. Dazzling vignettes of personal experiences, articles read, images absorbed, contemporary myths told by family members and current events, are interpreted into modern religious fables within sculptural windows of layered materials.

Opening Reception: Friday 12 August, 6 – 8pm
