Spectrum Arts Prize : Nnena Kalu

NKalu_8Dates:  Monday 30th April to Wednesday 2nd May 2018.
Venue: Saatchi Gallery, Duke of York’s HQ, King’s Rd, Chelsea, London SW3 4RY

Nnena Kalu was shortlisted as a finalist for Spectrum Art Prize and exhibited work at Saatchi Gallery in London as a result.

For the Spectrum Art Prize Nnena submitted eight pieces, including two recent works and the sculpture she made for the Capharnaum exhibition at the Theatre De Liege, Belgium. The works vary in size, composition and shape: some are tightly bound cocoons, others are expansive, loosely constructed shapes. Each time her work is exhibited Nnena adds further layers of material, meaning that her works are continually evolving and developing.

“Nnena works as if unravelling a long line. Everything starts and ends… Nnena’s work tests and expands the potential of site-specific sculpture.”

Sacha Craddock, Curator at Spectrum
