Live on Zoom, we host another Artist Talk. Next up: Ama van Dantzig will have a conversation with painter Emma Prempeh about her work, inspirations and the exhibition Onward&Upward.
Emma Prempeh (UK, 1996) made the work Ardour at a time when she was dealing with the loss of a loved one. It helped her come back to life and cope with a deep sense of loneliness. It captures an intimate, everyday setting, where two people hunker down together blissfully in a room. The painting appears to capture a moment frozen in time, but on closer inspection, time seems to be advancing.
This week the conversation is hosted by Ama van Dantzig, researcher and creative thinker based in Ghana and The Netherlands, and co-Founder of Dr.Monk.
Every Wednesday at 5pm for the upcoming weeks, we host an inspiring conversation with one of the artists through Zoom.
