New Works by Albert Samreth and Gor Soudan
This event has ended.
Through partnership with The Backers Foundation, AIT has previously hosted artists and curators from Africa, Asia, South America and the Middle East and here as part of the 7th joint residency programme, an exhibition is accompanied by research, production and cultural exchange through educational sessions.
Albert Samreth (Born in 1987, Los Angeles, USA) is an emerging conceptual artist who has developed a studio practice based around engaging with natural and systematic processes. For this exhibition, Samreth will present a new series of paintings created by either the effects of Tokyo’s heavy summer rainfall or made by the sunlight in a natural photographic process. The remainder of his work for the show will be derived from graphic scores related to his concurrent project for the International Moscow Biennale of Young Art, where he will be teaching songs to an African Grey Parrot.
Gor Soudan (Born in 1983, Kisumu, Kenya) is a self-taught conceptual artist based in Nairobi, Kenya. For this exhibition, Soudan will present pieces from his “Drawing in Space” series alongside linear drawings and an installation constructed in his Tokyo studio using a variety of locally-sourced, natural materials.
