Zak Ové - 20th Century & Contemporary Art Day Sale London Friday, March 4, 2022 | Phillips
  • 'The artist cites his mission as seeking to ‘reignite and reinterpret lost culture using new-world materials, whilst paying tribute to both spiritual and artistic African identity [and pursue art that] portrays the emancipation of personal existence through incarnation with an ‘other self,’ showing us the power of play to free an individual from the contained experience of the self.' —Zak Ové
    'Often what I think I look for are narratives in frozen moments, things that are suggestive, or things that take me places I have not been before… I’m looking for something that breaks the mundanity of my existence and educates me or takes me somewhere new.'
    —Zak Ové
