Unseen Amsterdam: Zohra Opoku

Westergas Klönneplein, 1014 DD Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 19 - 22 September 2019 

Woven Matters was a special exhibition in collaboration with Unseen Amsterdam, featuring Zohra Opoku's works for the 2019 edition of Unseen Amsterdam.


"This year at Unseen Amsterdam, we collaborated with LagosPhoto on a series of talks to be held in the Living Room – the home of our annual speakers programme. The result was a number of panel discussions, including Family Backgrounds – Archives, Documentation, and Continuity, which focused on artistic practices that use personal family archives and stories as a driving narrative force. Zohra Opoku’s multimedia work immediately came to mind. Created by screenprinting and using alternative photographic processes on textiles and garments, these pieces examine belonging, heritage, and finding a place between cultures."
