Baronian Xippas Knokke

Baronian Xippas Knokke is proud to present new works by Seyni Awa Camara (*1945 Bignona, Senegal) and Olaf Holzapfel (*1967 Dresden, Germany) in their upcoming duo show in Knokke-Heist. Displaying their works together for the first time represents an exciting opportunity to discover themes of past and present, of local and global culture in their practice. Camara’s œuvre blends Senegalese ancestral techniques with fantastical and autobiographical subjects that break with tradition. Holzapfel’s latest works similarly deconstruct notions of modernity and tradition, pursuing explorations from his project “Zaun” (Fence) produced for Documenta 14 in Kassel, Germany (2017). The exhibition will feature Camara’s newest sculptures and Holzapfel’s new works from the straw and chaguar fibre series. Their investigations into heritage, innovation, regionalism and internationalism resonate with today’s societal concerns and awards their juxtaposition a particularly compelling relevance.
