Inside Nkrumah’s secret ‘dungeon’ with Venezuelan Artist Ana Alenso

“MAD RUSH”. A solo show by Venezuelan artist Ana Alenso has officially opened at Nkrumah Voli-ni. The exhibition is part of EXISTING OTHERWISE. THE FUTURE OF COEXISTENCE curated by @solvejovesen and co-curated by Isabel Lewis and Ibrahim Mahama. Looking forward to showing the public around this magnificent show before it closes on 30th April 2022.

Ana Alenso, a Venezuelan artist based in Berlin, reflects on the global dependency on oil, gold and ecology and on the political, social and economic tensions between nations.

Working with sculpture, photography, installation, sound and video, her work builds an allegorical cosmos showcasing the economic, social and ecological risks and imbalances that are implicit in natural resource extractive practices. Her work has been exhibited in several spaces and institutions in Europe and Latin America. She holds an MFA in Art in Context from the Berlin University of Arts (2015), an MFA in Media Art & Design from Bauhaus University Weimar (2012) and a BA from Armando Reverón Arts University in Venezuela (2004).
