Liz Johnson Artur: If You Know the Beginning, the End is No Trouble

Thursday 13 June 2019Sunday 01 September 2019

New sculptural works incorporating photographs by Russian-Ghanaian artist Liz Johnson Artur. The exhibition focuses on Black British life in London, where Artur has lived since 1991. Artur has taken photographs across Europe, America, Africa and the Caribbean for more than three decades. She calls this ongoing project the Black Balloon Archive, alluding to a 1970 song lyric by Syl Johnson that describes a black balloon 'dancing' in the sky, which is how Artur imagines her own movement when taking photographs.
