about

Enticement Machine exposes the humour and horror of expectations placed on a racialized female body.

Michael Armitage: ‘The Chapel’ @ South London Gallery

about


A solo exhibition by London-based, Kenyan-born artist, Michael Armitage. Armitage show’s East Africa as somewhere very familiar. That is a welcome change from the ‘exotic’ ‘dark’ continent or ‘other’ images Western art has conjured up.

His large-scale paintings explore the ambiguous boundaries between religion, folklore and social consensus, particularly in relation to issues of mental health in East Africa. Referencing historical and contemporary news stories, internet gossip, and the artist’s own experiences of Kenya, the paintings blend dream-like figuration with compositional references to masters of Western art history.

Painted on Ugandan lubugo bark cloth, the texture and ruptures within this distinctive material are integrated into Armitage’s surreal imagery, the surface beauty of which often belies the disturbing subject matter upon which it is based.
