Arts and Culture Editor of Tatler Asia, Aaina Bhargava, joins Ibrahim Mahama to discuss what led the artist to challenge the way we perceive material histories.
Since he was a student, Mahama has been collecting materials through a process of negotiation, exchanging old for new in markets across Ghana. The resulting works investigate the political dimensions of these found objects, and the forms of labour embedded within them.
The talk coincides with ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’ at White Cube Hong Kong, Mahama’s first solo exhibition in Greater China, which runs until 14 May 2022.
Aaina Bhargava is a writer and editor based in Hong Kong, who previously worked as a culture reporter for South China Morning Post. During her tenure at Tatler Asia, she has significantly broadened the range of the magazine’s content, combining a passion for art history with extensive experience in various institutions across the continent. She regularly contributes to Art Agenda, Art Review and Ocula, among other publications.
