At Collezione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia, the artist’s largest paperwork to date explores the notion of movement. 

Occupying the entire central wall of Collezione Maramotti’s Pattern Room, HOW TO BE ENOUGH (2021) is ruby onyinyechi amanze’s largest work to date. Comprising 15 panels and extending to 3 x 18 m, the piece can be read in its entirety or as individual drawings. Dancers, divers, swimming pools, motorbikes and architectural elements inhabit the work in graphite, black and white photographic transfers, acrylic and ink on paper. They are, at once, graceful figures in a non-linear narrative and calculated arrangements in space.
