The Black Ark

The Armory Show | New York, NY

March 8th — March 11th 2018

 

Mariane Ibrahim Gallery marks its debut in the Gallery section of the Armory show with a solo presentation of new works from the British Liberian artist Lina Iris Viktor.

 

Breaking with conventional and traditional standards (white and opaque), Viktor’s solo booth is black and latticed. Titled The Black Ark, the site-specific installation unites artistic, design and architectural practice to explore notions of race, history, ownership and discovery. Referring to both marishibya veils and the fishnets of Liberian fisherman, the confined yet revealing space symbolically recaptures lost narratives, existing before the formation of artificial nations.

Arcadia: Into The Blue

Miami Art Basel | Miami, Florida

December 2nd — December 7th 2014

 

ARCADIA: Into the Blue, saw Viktor create a solo installation within Miami Art Basel that included 7 works. A continuation from her New York solo exhibition, Viktor again sought to immerse her audience into her golden world and philosophies by creating a visually striking blue moment for reflection within the maze of white wall galleries. Four new works were created specifically for the exhibition.
