Koop Projects presents a group show featuring works by Ronex Ahimbisbwe, Hamed Ouattara, Justin Gope and Johnson Zuze.
Ronex Ahimbisbwe, Hamed Ouattara, Justin Gope and Johnson Zuze are four artists based in Africa who work with found materials. Inherent in their bodies of work are themes of sustainability and mending and the potential for reincarnation inside everyday objects that most of us see as "old news". Each artist steps into their creative process from the same point - sourcing, selecting and collecting raw materials which might be as soft as yesterday's newspaper, as hard as nails or as fragile as glass. It is through their distinctly different methodologies that these mundane fragments are imbued with the energy of second life.
