18 May - 24 September 2017
Christian Nyampeta (b.1981) is a Rwandan-born Dutch artist whose artistic-philosophical enquiry considers ways of living together. Nyampeta's work is informed by a study of concepts of rhythms and harmonies from ancient Western asceticism and contemporary African/a philosophy.
For his residency, Nyampeta will work with a host of collaborators through staged workshops and programmes to create fictions, models, dialogues and commentaries, concerned with the life and afterlives of conviviality. These will look to consider and concretise other forms of exchange, hospitality and communal space.
This residency is the first to be supported by our recently established Artists for Artists Fund and will be followed by an exhibition of new work in October.
