Mawuena Kattah, Ceramics, Textiles and Works on Paper
Documenting a body of work produced over two years in the Victoria and Albert Museum Ceramics Studios, Studio Manifold and the Intoart Studio. Exhibited at Tenderbooks in July 2016 and displayed at the Victoria and Albert Museum in November 2016.
Kattah’s work draws upon an extensive personal archive of family photographs taken in Ghana spanning a number of decades, plus recent studio photographs of family taken in London. She brings people and pattern together in complex, vibrant compositions. Her work embodies a strong sense of community, creating environments that invite the subjects of her portraits and others to share in a growing social fabric of people, artworks, ceramics and textiles.
