Nii Obodai and Justin Keene: Resonances
12 January – 11 February 2022

“Messums London presents its first contemporary photography show by artists Nii Obodai and Justin Keene. Through a selection of delicately composed and ethereal images, this exhibition allows us to consider within an aesthetic language our relationship with nature and read cultural history through the environment.

Exhibited alongside each other for the very first time, Nii Obodai and Justin Keene belong to two generations of photographers exploring the marks of history in today’s African landscape while questioning their own notions of home. Through a selection of delicately composed and ethereal images, some never exhibited before, this exhibition allows us to consider within an aesthetic language our relationship with nature and read cultural history through the environment. ”
