AKKA Project is pleased to announce its participation at Photo Basel 2021, an art fair dedicated to photography, happening at the same time as Art Basel in Basel, from 21 to 26 September 2021.
Featured artists, find us at the booth nr. 19:
Filipe Branquinho with his new body of work Bestiarium.
“Coming across Filipe Branquinho’s new line of work we find something art had already probed, but now in a new format and revealing a latent inquietude, that stimulates with clarity the tension between the observer and the work. What stands out in these portraits is the fact of not looking “set”, staged. There is an organic unity – without seams or discontinuities – among the bodies, the head and its gestuality.” – António Cabrita
Margaret Ngigi with Mke Mwema (Good Wife), is taking a deeper look into what society is expecting her to do as a woman, consequentially what kind of wife is she expected to be.
Moira Forjaz with Mozambique 1975-1985, a selection of handprinted photographs, that carefully document, not only the civil war after the Moyambiqan independence in 1975 but also a very important human contribution of that same period. Work, that is more than unique, as Moira was the only woman photographer working during those years and capturing the special moment of everyday life.
And Mauro Pinto with a diptych dated Nada and 1984, shows us his view on the first day of the lockdown in 2020, following the declaration of the world pandemic due to Covid19.
