Ibrahim Mahama

For the past ten years, Ibrahim Mahama has been developing a powerful body of work that creates a dialogue with the various museums, monuments and public spaces that invite him.

For his first solo show in a French institution, Mahama has created an original work mixing architecture, painting, sculpture and archives. By recycling elements (doors, windows…) from his studio in Tamale, Ghana – a 1960s-era brutalist silo – and combining them with a selection of his personal wax prints and other handmade fabrics, with their multiple symbols and meanings, Mahama pursues his investigation into his country’s history, pan-Africanism, and the effects of post-independence movements.

Ibrahim Mahama (born 1987) lives and works in Tamale, Ghana.
