LAST CHANCE Henok Melkamzer

10 March


Featuring more than 100 works, many on view for the first time, this exhibition is the largest solo presentation of artworks by Ethiopian telsem artist Henok Melkamzer. Traditionally termed as healing or talisman art, telsem is a sophisticated visual art form that incorporates philosophy and intricate themes and includes various symbols, drawings and texts imbibed with deeper meanings. Combining ancient inspirations with modern idioms, Melkamzer’s canvas works reconstruct the conventions of this traditional art form and broaden the understanding of ‘modern’ art through their visual sophistication and complex conceptualisation.
