Tiwani Contemporary is pleased to announce The View From Here, a photography exhibition that will open during Photo London.
The View From Here presents works by seven emerging international artists, many of whom will be showing in London for the first time: Andrew Esiebo (Nigeria), Délio Jasse (Angola), Lebohang Kganye (South Africa), Namsa Leuba (Switzerland), Mimi Cherono Ng'ok (Kenya), Abraham Oghobase (Nigeria) and Dawit L. Petros (Eritrea / USA).
The works gathered in the exhibition openly challenge the status of the photograph as a document, preferring to explore its endless potential for subjective, fictional and poetic musings. The View From Here therefore showcases a diversity of attitudes towards the camera, underpinned by a probing of its limitations and possibilities. Shared interests lie in the overlap between personal narratives and collective history, and the tension between memory and the present. Participating artists meet in the crafting of a photographic language that reflects the complex and syncretic nature of being in the 21st century, here and elsewhere.
