Event details

Patois Banton is a solo exhibition by London-based artist, writer and curator Cedar Lewisohn. His recent work has focused on intertwining narratives within art history and the contemporary psyche; often done from a black British perspective.

Over the recent 2–3 years we have witnessed various historic museum collections being questioned for ethical reasons related to the obtaining of their artefacts. The mixing together of histories, locations, myths and hidden stories told through these collections has long been central to Cedar’s work. He has recently worked with objects from UK collections such as the British Museum, the Pit Rivers Museum, and the Petrie museum.

Objects and artefacts that Cedar engages with are translated and re-contextualised through large and small scale drawings – often processed through wood-carving prints – that become the starting point for a practice that embodies book-works, printed matter, performances, VR experience and the written word.
