Tau Lewis: when last you found me here

The Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Kingston, Canada (touring)

‘when last you found me here’ combines natural and synthetic materials to create simulations, or vessels, of living organisms. The solo presentation gathers figures and narrative fabric patchworks to form poignant “bulletproof” characters born of alternate geographies that re-articulate Black bodies and nature, employing traditional methods of construction such as hand sewing, carving and assemblage.

With a deep consideration for the objects she utilises, Tau Lewis recognises that they have been ‘passed through multiple hands and are energetically charged, which helps bring the figurative works to life’. Lewis’ material practice is directly influenced by her environment, while conceptually the sculptures investigate black identity and agency, memory and recovery, and the African diaspora.
