Born in 1959 Lives and works in Nigeria.

Kehinde Ken ADEWUYI’s sculpture immediately places us in space. The earth is affirmed by the imposing mass of the feet, the sky is indicated by the small head emerging from the end of the work. The light, a natural ally of the sculpture, first reveals the seat, but leads us irreparably to this tiny point that is the head. These women and men are welded to the ground, to the earth, the feet are enormous, disproportionate but remind us that in every human being they are indispensable. The head is nothing and can do nothing without the foot. Between these two extremities, the body operates the junction between heaven and earth, between spirit and animality. This body, with its expressionist, deformed appearance, is often folded in on itself and awaits the moment when it can finally develop, unfold in space.
