Kiluanji Kia Henda on exhibition at NAE and the 12th Gwangju Biennial

Africa State of Mind at the New Art Exchange explores the work of an emergent generation of photographers from across Africa (28 September – 16 December). Featuring 16 artists from 11 different countries including Kiluanji Kia Henda, the exhibition interrogates various ideas of ‘Africanness’ through highly subjective renderings of life and identity on the continent, revealing Africa to be a ‘psychological space as much as a physical territory; a state of mind as much as a physical location’. Concurrently in Korea, Kia Henda’s 75 series and the short-film Concrete Affection-Zopo Lady are showing at the 12th Gwangju Biennial (7 September – 11 November). These works are included on the exhibition Imagined Borders, which aims to explore the political, cultural, physical and emotional concepts of borders in today’s global community.
