ActionSpace artist Nnena Kalu presented a new installation at the ROKSANDA store in Mayfair. The main window display featured a series of towering sculptures by Nnena with additional works in the store.

Nnena Kalu explores space, scale, texture, and colour through repetitive and durational processes, constructing a dynamic relationship between her body and material.

She creates sculptures that are in a constant state of flux. Each sculpture is made, dissembled, and then remade for every installation. The works frequently begin with compact ‘cocoons’ of textiles and paper tightly packed in colourful cellophane. Repeated forms then build organically through extensive binding and wrapping with layers of paper, tapes, and unspooled VHS tapes.  These sculptures are a direct expression of Nnena’s physical movement. In the making of these works, which are created in multiples, a rhythm is built up and numerous layers are constructed as an exploration of continuous line and ever-evolving forms.
