Lives & Works in Khartoum, Sudan
Sudanese artist Amna Elhassan finds inspiration in the physical, spiritual, and spatial transformative processes experienced by women in her community. Women’s challenges and emancipative struggle are at the core of her work which traverses several mediums, including printmaking and oil painting. Tackling issues such as the perception of the female body in both the public and private spheres, Elhassan's work adds to the conversation surrounding the status of women in today's society.
In 2022, Elhassan presented her work in a solo exhibition at the University of Fine Arts in Hamburg followed by her first institutional solo exhibition "Deconstructed Bodies - In Search Of Home" at Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt. She also had a solo exhibition at Sakhile&Me in early 2023.
Amna Elhassan will be presented by Sakhile&Me.
