El Anatsui's second solo exhibition in Korea

El Anatsui: Day After Night is a compelling story on the materiality of light. The exhibition reveals, for the first time, new metal tapestries of shimmering golds, vivid reds, and dark browns, a colourful wood panel work, and a set of monoprints. These works embrace the walls and space of Barakat Contemporary encouraging light to float and play about and emphasizing the stunning presence and inner aspects of the gallery and the works therein.
