This year for Iniva’s 5th annual window commission we are very pleased to be showing a work by Malian artist Abdoulaye Konaté ‘Power and Religion‘.
It took a few pairs of hands to install this 7 metre textile artwork into the narrow space in Rivington Place’s vast street facing window, but we think its going to be the star attraction of Rivington Street throughout December! Here is a sneak preview of the work, a few days before its unveiling to the public on the 7th.
Find out more about the work which reflects on the relationship in Africa between power and religion – the position of Christianity and Islam within political and cultural life here. The artist will be in conversation with writer Coline Milliard on 6 December – book your place.
