Tanoa Sasraku

Artist Talk - Tanoa Sasraku

Saturday 25 February 2023


Note: This event is taking place at our neighbours Leicester Print Workshop, book your place on Eventbrite here.

Join us to hear more about Tanoa Sasraku’s wide-ranging practice, which shifts between sculpture, drawing, print and filmmaking.

Her stitched and torn newsprint works are inspired by the Fante Asafo flags of coastal Ghana and geometric forms found in Tartan cloth, towers and pinnacles of rock. Her own banners map personal stories of a life lived in modern Britain, as newsprint, pigment and basic craft processes bind together to create cryptic, ceremonial objects.

In her practice as a filmmaker, Sasraku engages in retellings of traditional folklore from a black and lesbian perspective, as well as producing more diaristic journeys through her past, via the medium of analogue film.

The event will begin with a talk by the artist, followed by an in-conversation with Two Queens staff and a chance for open discussion.

A budget is available to cover the costs of audience access needs for this event (i.e. BSL interpretation). Please let us know about any access requirements when booking your place or email info@2queens.com for more information.

This event is made possible by public funding from The National Lottery through Arts Council England.
