Gallery 1957 presents a solo exhibition from the artist Zohra Opoku. Titled Sassa, the exhibition explores the role of textile culture in the materialisation of concepts beyond the individual’s corporeal reality. Based in Accra, and of German and Ghanaian descent, Opoku’s versatile work expands across installation, performance and lens-based media. Opoku’s examination of textile culture considers fashion’s political, psychological and socio-cultural role in relation to both African history, and individualistic or societal identities.
