Georges Adeagbo (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This is a superbly illustrated look at the latest works of acclaimed "found" object artist Georges Adeagbo. Georges Adeagbo (b.1942) is a Beninese artist best known for his work with found objects. Adeagbo studied law in France and the Ivory Coast before returning to Benin in 1971 after the death of his father. Suffering from a profound sense of isolation and alienation, he began to create "installations" from objects he collected, but it was not until the 1990s and a chance encounter with a critic that that he began to receive recognition for his work. He was awarded the Prize of Honour at the 48th Venice Biennale for his exhibition The Story of the Lion. This superbly illustrated volume examines Adeagbo's latest works which focus on the complex theme of Missionaries and Martyrs.
