Hako Hankson - Its Complicated
Feb 14th - July 10th, 2020
Its Complicated is an exhibiton that brings Hako Hankson’s personal struggle between tradition and modernity to the forefront. He sees modernization’s ramifications as a threat to African cultural heritage. Religion is becoming less popular and is subsequently threatening cultural heritage in Africa. His paintings visualize his fears, albeit his intention is to make the viewer aware, to remember and to preserve. The faces in his work are traces of cultural heritage, of memories he wants us to remember and preserve and bring to the future.
The exhibition ran from February 14th until July 10th.
