BAR Presents Zoe Landau Konson until Sunday 16th February

 BAR Presents Zoe Landau Konson


Exhibiting until Sunday 16th February
4-5 Queens Parade, Willesden, NW2 5HT
Zoƫ Landau Konson is a London based artist and designer who creates sculpture that is both commemorative and revealing. She grew up in a creative refugee family, deeply affected by the aftermath of displacement, but brimming with stories, secrets and the unconventional. This environment had a huge impact on her and the themes that now influence her work are generated by a fascination with cultural memory and hereditary narrative.
