Gala Porras-Kim @ Gasworks Gallery

27 January 2022 - 27 March 2022

Gala Porras-Kim work investigates the institutional frameworks that define, legitimise and preserve cultural heritage, looking at the global circulation of precolonial artefacts extracted from their original sites and stored in museum collections in the West.

Porras-Kim’s work questions the ethical principles of museum conservation while inviting the viewer to assign new meanings to artefacts displayed within institutions. Her exhibition examines the (after)life of sacred objects at the British Museum, thinking through ways of compromising with their otherworldly original owners.
