    Kapwani Kiwanga: Cache

    08 May - 12 June 2021
    Goodman Gallery is pleased to present Cache, a new body of work by Kapwani Kiwanga. The exhibition marks Kiwanga's first solo exhibition in the United Kingdom since her debut at South London Gallery in 2015. Considered one of the most acclaimed artists of her generation, Kiwanga was recently awarded the prestigious Prix Marcel Duchamp Prize for her sculptural series, Flowers for Africa. For Cache, Kiwanga has created a series of formal sculptures and installations that continue her interrogation of history, power and resistance. By layering narratives and myths, Kiwanga considers how various natural materials become witnesses to history. A cache refers to a component that stores data, particularly through a layered network of memory. Similarly, through this exhibition, Kiwanga creates a space of storage for memory, stories, myths and histories where each layer reveals new connections.
