It's a Questions of Power, Isn't It?


Ibrahim Mahama (1987, Ghana) is an artist living and working between Accra, Kumasi and Tamale, Ghana. Failure and delay of specific forms always inform his choice of sites which his works both occupy and are occupied by. Residues and points of chaos registered as marks within the forms he selects, offer alternative perspectives of looking into the materials and Labour conditions of society, while politics of the hand and its parallel relation to architectural forms become ever more evident. His work; a straight line through the carcass of history, has also dealt with forms related to the second World War and bacterial life. Mahama was a guest of 2018 The DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program. In march 2019, he opened SCCA Tamale; an artist run space dedicated to retrospectives of 20th century art practices.
