The Kuenyehia Trust for Contemporary Art officially launches its new space with an exhibition by Daniel Ofoe Amegavie and Caleb Aryee.

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”.

Ofoe Amegavie and Caleb Aryee will inaugurate this cycle of exhibitions with “Catharsis I” - a photo exhibition. The selected works by the two Accra based photographers tackle four deeply intertwined topics: spirituality, mental health, domestic violence and identity.

Ofoe’s oeuvre explores spirituality as a way to reconcile his mother’s past struggle with mental health with his present self in the hope of building his own independent identity. His black and white series portray women, with the absence of colours used as an analogy to his state of mind at the time.

The very topical issue of violence and more specifically domestic abuse is the central theme of Caleb Aryee’s body of work. His graphic pictures are meant to trigger discomfort and question society’s contribution to the perpetuation of such behaviour.

The exhibition will also be the opportunity to inaugurate the new Kuenyehia Trust for Contemporary Art gallery.
