Yinka Shonibare MBE At The Fitzrovia Chapel

Yinka Shonibare Fitzrovia Chapel

A solo presentation of hand-painted sculptures by Yinka Shonibare MBE, presented by Stephen Friedman Gallery, in the exquisite and intimate setting of Grade II* listed Fitzrovia Chapel, London to coincide with Frieze London and Frieze Masters.

In the central nave stand three unique sculptures in which Shonibare reinterprets masterpieces of Greek and Roman antiquity. In each work, Shonibare’s figures are transformed by the artist’s uniquely designed signature Dutch wax batik patterns that are painted directly onto the surface. Each bears a bespoke handmade globe as its head that depicts a contemporary map, alluding to a form of universal identity. Reimagining these classical myths for the present day, Shonibare retains the dramatic impact of the original statues.
