Nuit Blanche artist Ibrahim Mahama lives and works in Ghana. His large-scale installation work meditates on themes of commodity, migration and memory. In particular he engages with the history of found objects, natural materials and molecular elements, which are carriers of time and intangible narratives.  His temporary sculptural interventions prompt transnational dialogues that explore shared histories while also speaking about contemporary Africa.
