Christine Eyene‘s latest curatorial project in London, serial attempts, brings together three artists working in different media to explore the creative process of art-making, in which ‘serial attempts’ are made to achieve the often unachievable.

Cecilia Ferreira (Mozambique/South Africa) presents an experimental video, The Chaos Within (2009); Cristiano Berti (Italy) contributes a sound installation, Happy (2004); and Pélagie Gbaguidi (Benin/Belgium) shows notes and sketches from the series Conciliabule (2003-2006). This last work inspired ‘process: immaterial proposal’, Eyene’s wider project aiming to ‘apprehend art, notably produced by African artists, beyond fixed narratives, representations, and identities’.
