Time Travelers to Crop Pickers is an exploration of ancient cultures, including Dogon cosmology and our connection to the earth through portraiture. Kofi plays with paint and collage to document the strong and extraordinary women who cultivate our foods. Questions are interwoven within each piece around the challenges we face requiring us to constantly renegotiate our relationship with the environment and the planet.
Kofi gives an insightful talk about ‘Time Travellers to Crop Pickers’ explaining how the narrative of survival and migration shaped the themes and title of the show . He will also expand upon the importance of drawing in his own practice as an artist. The talk will be followed by a Q&A with signed prints available to purchase on the night.
