Nnena Kalu: Wrapping


6 November – 8 December 2019
Humber Street Gallery, 64 Humber Street, Hull, East Yorkshire, HU1 1TU

ActionSpace artist Nnena Kalu created and exhibited new sculptural works in her solo exhibition Wrapping at Humber Street Gallery. Nnena Kalu’s sculptural practice is driven by an instinctive urge to create raw and intense sculptural artworks. Kalu’s mighty, colourful sculptures were created by layering and binding materials such as industrial plastic tubing, newspaper, foam, cling film, fabric and tape. Nnena constructed a series of large-scale sculptures that playfully wrapped around the gallery, responding to the unique architecture of the Project Space. 

Members of the public were able to watch Nnena construct the work in the Project Space between 30th October – 5th November, which provided a unique opportunity to see the work in progress and observe its development.
