Onyeka Igwe: history is a living weapon in yr hand

About

Saturday 13th January - Saturday 2nd March | 2024 | 11am - 3pm
Bonington Gallery
Free

history is a living weapon in yr hand is a solo exhibition of new and reconfigured work by London based artist Onyeka Igwe.

The exhibition will be centred around a new two-screen adaptation of Igwe's dual timeline experimental film A Radical Duet (2023). The film imagines what happened when two women of different generations, but both part of the post-war independence movement, came together in London to put their fervour and imagination into writing a revolutionary play. The film depicts this process, and envisages what that play would look like, if staged today.

The film will be accompanied by elements of the set design and props from the making of A Radical Duet, taking inspiration from Sylvia Wynter's ideas on theatrical adaptation.
