In the expo ‘Grace Ndiritu Re-Imagines the FOMU Collection’, British-Kenyan artist Grace Ndiritu makes a radical and holistic reinterpretation of what a collection exhibition can be. Grace Ndiritu invites you to look at the FOMU collection with an open mind, make intuitive connections and abandon rational thinking. The result is a sensory experience in a modernist interior.
Ndiritu selected dozens of images, books and cameras and brought them together into an associative whole. Her photographic installation ‘A Quest For Meaning’ (2014) is the starting point of the exhibition and her search through the FOMU collection.
Besides works by Tina Modotti, Georgia O’Keeffe, Annie Albers, Man Ray, Wolfgang Tillmans, Filip Tas, and Nadine Tasseel, among others, the exhibition also features the ‘Keizerpanorama’ (1905), a masterpiece from the FOMU collection that will be shown to the public again after a thorough restoration.
