Luck Comes Before Love – Sarah Nsikak in The Gallery

  • 8:00 am - 11:59 pm | Wednesday February 15, 2023
  • Gallery | Ace Hotel New York

Drawing from African proverbs and idioms, Nsikak borrows romance folkloric imagery from the many cultures she calls home. Using her material of choice, recycled fiber, her installation is a sensory experience, a quiet invitation which urges loud questions – chief amongst them:

How can black women reclaim a softness they have been refused?

 

About: 

Sarah Nsikak is a Nigerian-American artist and designer living the Hudson Valley of New York and working out of her Brooklyn studio. She is the founder and creative director of La Réunion, a womenswear brand that uses strictly deadstock, antique, and vintage fabrics from around the world to craft its signature clothing pieces. La Réunion draws from many influences including the vibrant stories of the African diaspora, post colonial art and photography, reclaimed beauty, identity, color, joy, and inviting oneself back to what’s been central all along. These are also amongst the themes that she applies in her fine art practice, using applique and patchworking to create folkloric tapestries.
