Abdulrazaq Awofeso

OUT OF FRAME

Commissioned by Ikon, this solo exhibition by Nigerian artist Abdulrazaq Awofeso features all new work. It includes a multitude of figurative sculptures made from discarded wooden pallets – utilised to transport goods around the world, this widely used material forms a metaphor of human migration. Awofeso, recently arrived in Birmingham from Lagos, has individually crafted and painted each figure which represent an array of real and imagined characters, and embody the modern city, where people from all walks of life come together.

Abdulrazaq Awofeso’s exhibition is part of Ikon’s Arrivals programme for Summer 2022, concerned with the international movement of people and ideas and organised to coincide with the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

This exhibition is supported by the Ikon Investment Fund.
