Anna Boghiguian @ Tate St Ives

8 February 2019 - 6 May 2019

This is the first retrospective in the UK of the Egyptian-Canadian artist of Armenian origin, Anna Boghiguian. She is informed by her interest in philosophy and her continuous travels, Boghiguian’s work comments on the human condition through the perspectives of global trade, mass migration, colonialism and war. The exhibition,¬†The Personal and the Political, features large-scale installations of cut-out paper figures, alongside paintings, collages and books, as well as components of the artist’s studio brought to St Ives. While addressing current global concerns, the exhibition resonates with the local context of St Ives as an artists’ community, and Cornwall’s industrial history in terms of seafaring and trade
