Celebrating the 40th anniversary of October Gallery with El Anatsui

Coinciding with El Anatsui’s largest retrospective “Triumphant Scale”, this exhibition celebrates the vision andd creative force of El Anatsui and a successful collaboration between the artist and October Gallery since 1993. “I was playing with this idea of a ‘fabric’ as something that’s not fixed. The folds in the material have their own way of running – I don’t create them – they happen naturally, by themselves. The amazing thing about working with these ‘fabrics’ is that every time you display one of them it becomes an entirely new work of art.” El Anatsui
