About ZAK OVE

 

Zak Ové born 1966 Lives and works in London and Trinidad

 

Zak Ové works between sculpture, film and photography. His mission is to reignite and reinterpret lost culture using new-world materials, whilst paying tribute to both spiritual and artistic African identity.

 

The work is born from his documentation of and anthropological interest in diasporic and African history, specifically that which is explored through Trinidadian carnival.

 

His work portrays the emancipation of personal existence through incarnation with an ‘other self’, showing us the power of play to free an individual from the contained experience of the self.

 

This in turn is filtered through his own personal and cultural upbringing, growing up in London and Trinidad.

 

Zak Ové is represented by Vigo Gallery, London
