Samson Kambalu »Mdondo«

Berlin , September 10, 2022 - October 29, 2022

Opening + Artist Talk, September 9, from 6 pm

Kambalu’s exhibition will provide an overview of his most recent works combining videos, texts, paintings, textiles, a new large scale sculpture and the maquette for his powerful work „Antelope“.

Kambalu was awarded the Fourth Plinth commission for this sculpture, one of the world’s most famous public art commissions. The sculpture, a tribute to Pan-Africanist and anticolonial Malawian rebel John Chilembwe, will be on view in London’s Trafalgar Square from September 14, 2022 to 2024. For Kambalu „Antelope on the Fourth Plinth was ever going to be a litmus test for how much I belong to British society as an African and a cosmopolitan.“
