Joshua Oheneba-Takyi

This collection is called A Seat At The Table. In his work, he intimately documents and examines the themes of placement and displacement, often employing the chair as a metaphor for notions of stability and belonging.

The Seat at the Table Teal card is PawaBank’s VIP card and is available through invite only.

Emmanuel Taku

There exists a tone of kinship from the relationship between the individuals (brothers) within communities captured in ubiquitous embraces. Through the composition, we see the interconnection of the black bodies, where there is a focus placed on the theme of unity and strength. Taku sends a reminder to the viewer of the age-old African Swahili saying of Ubuntu, meaning ‘I am because we are.’ He explores the importance of the figures being juxtaposed to create a sense of consolidation, synergy, and unity.

The use of newspapers found throughout the bodies creates the narrative that there is power within words. Taku looks to push the boundaries of representation and believes it is important to celebrate its complexity that black people turn to internalise.
