rosenfeld porcini is proud to participate in the 2018 edition of the fair with a curated booth with works by argentinian artist Sebastian Gordin and nigerian painter Ndidi Emefiele.
Sebastián Gordín, born in 1969 in Buenos Aires, lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He studied drawing at the School of Fine Arts Manuel Belgrano from where he graduated in 1989 as a teacher of drawing.
Gordín emerged in the Argentina of the late 80’s and was part of a group of artists who were criticised for their apparently apolitical art. In fact the artist talks of the sense of the ‘joy of creation’ which suffuses his work as a necessary reaction to the extreme darkness of the terrifying period in the 70’s which Argentina went through.
Ndidi Emefiele (b.1987) lives and works in Abuja, Nigeria.
Drawing on cultural, gendered and personal references, Ndidi Emefiele creates layered figurative compositions that, dynamic in brush stroke and in juxtaposition of colour, conjure the complexity of contemporary experience and female identity. Emerging out of the Nigerian panorama, the strength of her narrative becomes even more pronounced as she encompasses collage, textiles and traditional materials conveying a strong sense of cultural heritage and aesthetics inspired by her homeland.
