Lives & Works in London, UK
British Ghanaian artist and curator Enam Gbewonyo completed a BA in European Textile Design at Bradford School of Art and Design. Now a practising studio artist, Gbewonyo’s practice investigates identity, womanhood, and humanity through the mediums of textiles and performance. She also advocates for handcraft’s spiritual healing powers, using processes like embroidery, knit, weave, print and wire-work heavily in her art.
Gbewonyo has exhibited with galleries and institutions such as; New Art Exchange, Gallerie delle Prigoni in Treviso, Italy, and the Royal Academy of Arts. She has delivered performances for Arts & Heritage at London Guildhall, Two Temple Place, and for Arts Territory’s Palace of Ritual which formed part of the 58th edition of Venice Biennale’s opening week collateral programme. Very recently, Gbewonyo completed a residency programme at the Dakar based Black Rock Senegal, and was the 2022 winner of The NAE Exhibition Prize.
Enam Gbewonyo will be presented by TAFETA.
