This Is Money

Coumba Samba

Info: This Is Money marks Coumba Samba’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Her interdisciplinary work is rooted in studying process, hybridity, materiality and modes of visual communication. Samba investigates the uneasy relationships between the durable and the temporary against a backdrop of uncertainty and accelerated cultural consumption. At the heart of her enquiry is an unlikely event of play, community, collective care or love-making spawning semi-randomly in the universe against the odds of it’s unfriendly environment, where color, symbol, humor and naiveté are utilized as instruments for formative and conceptual upcycling. Coumba Samba was born in 2000 in Harlem, New York City. She is based in London.
