UntitledSulger-Buel Gallery cordially invites you to attend the opening reception of Surpassing the Eternally Mysterious Afro-surreal, the latest solo exhibition by Cameroonian Artist Adjani Opku-Egbe. The exhibition will be opened in the presence of the Artist on Thursday 7 November 2019 at 18:30 and concludes on Thursday 26 December 2019.

Surpassing the Eternally Mysterious Afro-surreal Overtly characterised by the subject matter and themes that Okpu-Egbe considers relevant to the times, this exhibition contains works whose thought provoking social commentary are deeply embedded in semi abstract Afro-surreal figurative expressions voicing an urgent need to boost parallel structures for: "resisting injustice, demanding accountability, documenting events and generating awareness.”

For this exhibition, Okpu-Egbe presents us with works that compel reflection and discussion to address issues regarding climate change, patriarchy, hate, racism, “occupation” and the struggles for independence in Ambazonia, West Papua and West Sahara. The Israel Palestinian conflict as well as the wars in Syria, the Central African Republic, and the genocide carried out on the Rohingyas in Myanmar by the regime. The artworks do not only intend to highlight “struggles”, they go further to act as a call to rally support and resistance, advocacy for justice and above all, solidarity with those who bear the brunt of most conflicts – notably women, children, the less abled, the elderly and Prisoners of Conscience.
