Description

INSTALLATION
 
View the incredible installation, TSIATSIA – searching for connection, by African artist, El Anatsui. At 15.6m x 25m, the wall-hanging sculpture is one of the largest he has made using his bottle top technique.
 
The ‘canvas’ comprises eight vertical panels composed of regularly patterned pieces and includes found and recycled metals such as aluminium bottle tops and printers’ plates, whose elements represent in abstract the strokes and splashes painted upon the piece.
 
TSIATSIA – searching for connection was created as a site-specific installation to transform the historic façade of London’s Royal Academy in 2013, says Anatsui’s representatives, October Gallery. It now adorns the museum’s iconic BMW Atrium.
 
On view: February 2019 – December 2019
