El Anatsui: Gawu

Gawu is a striking exhibition featuring large-scale works, including giant wall cloths, made from discarded metal objects such as bottle tops, aluminium plates and copper wire.

El Anatsui is one of Africa’s most powerful contemporary artists. Originally from Ghana, he now lives in Nigeria and his work draws on traditions from both countries, as well as from contemporary Western art.
