Lina Iris Viktor, We are the Night — The Keepers of Light, 2015-19
Edition of 48. Last chance - final print in this edition, exclusively available from Autograph.
Autograph commissioned this artwork in 2019 for the British-Liberian artist’s first major solo exhibition Some Are Born To Endless Nights – Dark Matter. The work forms part of Viktor’s evocative Dark Continent series (2016 - present), an imaginary riposte to the 19th century myth of Africa as the ‘dark continent’, and imperial fantasies of empire and expansion.
In these works on paper, a solitary female figure - naked, shrouded in black paint, her hair golden – inhabits an imaginary monochromatic landscape, its lustrous darkness punctuated by solar and lunar symbols. This limited edition has been generously donated to Autograph by the artist as a fundraiser.
