DESCRIPTION

For her first solo exhibition in a public gallery in the UK, Ângela Ferreira presents her renowned project Political Cameras (For Mozambique series) alongside a new commission which will reference the legacy of David Livingstone’s life and work, and the relationship between Africa and Europe from colonial days to the present.

Although considered a sculptor, photography and film have become an integral part of Ferreira’s sculptural proposition since the early 1990s. By presenting sculptures alongside the reference images which inform them, Ferreira enables the viewer to devise their own meaning from within the two realms.
