Artwork of the Week – by Nnena Kalu

Nnena Kalu

Artwork of the Week features a beautiful abstract drawing by our Glasgow International artist Nnena Kalu.

For Glasgow International 2018 Project Ability invited installation artist Nnena Kalu to work in the gallery. As Artist in Residence for the first week of the festival, visitors are invited to watch Kalu as she creates a large scale sculptural installation.

Kalu is an artist working with ActionSpace, a London based visual arts organisation that supports artists with learning disabilities. To create her installations, she binds and layers materials to create large, colourful structures that wrap themselves around the gallery, reacting to the size, shape and environment of each new setting.

In addition to Kalu’s installations she also often works on large drawings in her studio at ActionSpace. Usually working on two drawings at a time, arranged in a corner, the artist works fast and steadily. Come by the Project Ability gallery at Trongate 103 to see the installation and some of the her drawings.
