The Future Perfect is proud to present our second exhibition of new works by Accra, Ghana based artist Paa Joe, now on view at Casa Perfect New York.
Those familiar with his work will immediately recognize his reference to Ghanaian burial tradition, in which interment vessels are made as sculptural tributes to the deceased. Commonly recognizable objects, from cell phones to cigarettes are re-situated as iconographic and monumental odes, while retaining their ephemeral qualities. Both playful and deliberate, these small pieces counter themselves by holding the space that exists between mourning and celebration.
We are thrilled to continue our relationship with this world renowned artist and expert craftsman and are honored in our ability to showcase pieces from his profound body of work.
