Samson Kambalu: Solo exhibition at Peer, UK; two-person show at Mu.ZEE, Belgium

Opening on 23 January at PEER, Postcards from the Last Century is a solo presentation by Samson Kambalu. The exhibition features Kambalu’s ‘Nyau’ cinema films, which were shot during his recent research trip to the Black Forest in Bavaria, visiting Heidegger’s Hut and Bayreuth, the home of Wagnerian opera. Having the look of found footage from early cinema, the films have been described by the artist as ‘cinematic fragments that blend slapstick and spiritual ritual’. Kambalu will also be on a two-man exhibition with Vincent Meessen, entitled History without a past at Mu.ZEE in Oostende, Belgium from 1 February to 17 May 2020.
