The Power Plant will present Omar Ba’s first institutional exhibition in Winter 2019. Using objects and materials from his immediate surroundings, Ba paints mainly on cardboard with a mixture of various media including oils, watercolor, ink and pencil. His compositions are comprised of fantastical or mythological creatures amidst images of colonial violence and exploitation across the African continent, set among lush flora and fauna. He currently lives and works between Dakar, Senegal and Geneva, Switzerland. This hardcover publication features texts by Alain Quemin, Omar Ba and Klara Tuszynski and is co-produced by Hales Gallery, Galerie Anne De Villepoix, Galleria Guiseppe Pero, Galerie Guy Bärtschi.
