Xavier Leopold brings us his second solo exhibition, Lion Mountains, following his debut in October 2020.
Walking a tightrope of education and intrigue, this new body of work has been curated to deliver a captivating narrative of the artist’s Sierra Leonean, West African, heritage and culture.
From Bai Bureh the warrior and the iconic Cotton Tree to tales of ‘mami wata’ and Zion Methodist Church, the collection vibrantly places some of Sierra Leone’s historical moments, mythology; popular culture and tradition centre stage.
The exhibition is on during the month of the artist’s milestone 30-year age and Sierra Leone’s 61st year of independence.
OXO Tower Wharf, Barge House St, London SE1 9PH, UK.
