Zak Ové

Speaker

Vigo Gallery
27 November 2013 – 10 January 2014

Vigo presents Zak Ové’s first solo show with the gallery following on from his recent participation in Glasstress at the Venice Biennale.

Ové works between sculpture, film, painting and photography, often collaging the various elements using found, cast and recovered materials. He is interested in reinterpreting lost culture and mythology using modern and antique materials, paying tribute to both spiritual and artistic African and Trinidadian identities which have been given new meanings through Trinidadian carnival and the cross cultural dispersion of ideas.
