Tiwani Contemporary will show Eshetu's acclaimed 2014 work Anima Mundi, an immersive multimedia and video installation, as well as the five-screen video installation Meditation Light (2006) and works from the photographic series The Mirror Ball Constellation (2013-2015).

About

Tiwani Contemporary now represents Theo Eshetu and we are delighted to announce his first solo exhibition in the UK. Considered one of the most influential media practitioners of the contemporary era, the London-born Ethiopian artist and filmmaker is known for his pioneering work across film, television and video.

Since the early 1980s, Theo Eshetu has combined the formal components of film with anthropological ideas to examine the notion of culture itself. His manipulation of time and light leads to work that draws on themes and images from the artist's dual European and African background. As one of the first artists to work exclusively with video art, Eshetu has contributed significantly to the medium's recognition within the context of fine art.

Eshetu's long form essay-films and multiscreen video installations have gained him international recognition at numerous film festivals (Venice, New York, Mill Valley, Edinburgh, London, Montreal, Fespaco) and museums.
