La Puente - Seat of Honor

5 April - 1 May 2019

LKB/G and kulturreich are pleased to announce their shared exhibition "La Puente - Seat of Honor" by Charlotte Schmitz and Stacey Gillian Abe.

 

Born in 1990, Stacey Gillian Abe graduated in 2014 with a B.A (Hon) in Art and industrial design from Kyambogo University in Kampala, Uganda. Her work is a mirror of her past memories as an young African woman and the continuous personal experiences within the community she inhabits. The autobiographical documentation highlights specific complex situations like stereotypical depictions of her as a black woman drawing on the strengths and fragility of the female mind. Similarly, her art probes unsettling narratives on the subject of identity, gender, spirituality and cultural mysticism, including the past and present. Gillian incorporates a metaphorical and experimental approach to her work through her interest in exploring new techniques with parallel mediums like glass, ceramics, fibers, textures and light photography. In her photo series on the performance of the same name.
