The Kuenyehia Trust for Contemporary Art presents Catharsis II, a sequel exhibition to Catharsis I, featuring artists Frederick Botchway, John Edem Tamakloe and Simon Bowman Jr.

In 2019, The Kuenyehia Trust for Contemporary Art, supported by the MTN Ghana Foundation, continues its efforts in supporting  shortlisted artists of the 2018 Kuenyehia Prize for Contemporary Ghanaian Art through 4 exhibitions dubbed “Catharsis'.

The second exhibition of the series, dubbed Catharsis II, will once again focus on artists working with photography.

Edem Tamakloe's body of work is intrinsically inspired by his architectural background. The self- taught photographer invites his audience to see their immediate environment with a novel regard, focusing on the indiscernible, heights, lights, shadows and volumes.

Frederick Botchway couples photography and painting into single pieces through a reinvented oil painting technique. His recent body of work takes cues from Western Academic painting traditions, iconographies of babies in medieval paintings, and Ghana's baby photography scene in the late 20th Century. The work perhaps prompts us to ask if anything new can be made from those forms.

Simon Bowman Junior investigates traditional photography techniques and processes in his recent work, employing 35mm photographic film, as well as other staples of analogue photography. The artist aims to, perhaps, join the movement expanding photography beyond a tool of documentation and into artistic abstraction.

The exhibition's opening is on July 25th at 6pm.
The exhibition will last till September 12 - Opening times: Mon - Fri 9am - 5pm.
