Samson Kambalu - Postcards from the Last Century
Samson Kambalu’s approach to making art is akin to his approach to life – ‘I think about life as a creative project’ he says. This ethos is derived from his knowledge of 19th and 20th century Western philosophical thought, richly blended with and viewed through a lens of multiple and merging belief systems as experienced during his youth.
The exhibition includes up to ten new film projections alongside other work.
Alongside his films, Kambalu will show work arising from his childhood memory of collecting bubble gum cards of the flags of the world. These national and sovereign identities are manipulated and dissected using smart phone technology to create images that adopt the ‘look’ of geometric Western abstract painting, and also resonate with the vibrant colours and bold pattering of African Kente cloth.
