New Work - Mixed Medium

Adjoa Armah - The sea, it slopes like a mountain

Auto Italia presents The sea, it slopes like a mountain, an exhibition by Adjoa Armah. Starting with the question of what it could mean to treat a journey, through both space and time, as an artistic and instructional medium, Armah sets out to translate the first in a series of trips along the Ghanaian coast into an exhibition grammar.

Within the exhibition Armah stages copies of objects selected for their function as sonic, linguistic, spiritual, historical, spatial, bodily and social technologies. These objects are produced out of material gathered on this trip and accompanied by its sonic elements; field recordings of sea, birds, conversation, and the artist’s own narration.
