Abdulrazaq Awofeso, A Thousand Men Cannot Build a City (2017) Mixed media Installation dimensions variable

About

Commissioned by Ikon, this solo exhibition by Nigerian artist Abdulrazaq Awofeso features all new work. It includes a multitude of small figurative sculptures made from wooden forklift pallets – utilised to transport goods around the world, this widely used material forms a metaphor of human migration. The figures, which are individually crafted and painted by the artist, embody the modern city, where people from all walks of life come together. Awofeso's works represent an array of real and imagined characters, recalling Antony Gormley's Field for the British Isles, an installation of 40,000 unique terracotta figures which was exhibited at Ikon in 1995. 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.
