Ibrahim Mahama: Fracture

Ibrahim Mahama: Fracture

The raw materials with which Ibrahim Mahama (b. Ghana, 1987) creates his large, site-specific installations are jute sacks used for transporting cocoa, coffee or coal. Made in India or Bangladesh, they are however stamped with “Produced in Ghana.” By using these sacks, bearing the vestiges of the wanderings of products and materials, Mahama elucidates how capital and power move to and from Africa, interchanging significance, value and statue.



The installation was made possible thanks to the generosity of Jill and Jay Bernstein
Supported by Outset Contemporary Art Fund
