NNENNA OKORE | 2021
For the monumental fabric And the World Keeps Turning, Okore drew inspiration from the common brick façades in Bruges and the technique of lace-making. The textile installation accentuates the shape of the tower, a late medieval relic where gunpowder was stored. The textile sculpture is composed of a succession of amorphous shapes made of weather-resistant PVC that temporarily change the appearance of the tower. Okore's installation is a metaphor for how time intrudes, keeps spinning and literally moves like a circle, just like the sun.
