In Between Gallery: Fight

Amartey Golding

Archive Exhibitions (31 August to 1 October 2022)
The In Between Gallery is a temporary gallery in the Fabrica window showing contemporary photography between Fabrica's main exhibition programme. We show work from two artists a year including an Open Call between December and April. 
Showing this year is Amartey Golding's ‘Fight’, from the series ‘Is It Just Me? Or Is It You?’ which was created in 2018.

Fight’ depicts a close family member and close friend of the artist wrestling in chainmail trousers made by the artists weighing over 50 kilograms. Using a high resolution camera, the powerful men, despite their intensity, are frozen like a greek statue of the gods wrestling. The image explores historic nostalgia of violence, masculinity, competition and eroticism.

​Amartey Golding is a multi disciplinary artist who prefers to work in mediums he is untrained in. He is excited by the contradictions in himself and the cultures he is part of.

About The Artist

Born and raised as a Rastafarian between London, Cambridge and Ghana, Amartey Golding was born in London in 1988 to an Anglo Scottish mother, Ghanaian father and Jamaican stepfather.

Amartey's work documents his introspective process of identifying and understanding the primal unifying themes of humanity using his own personal context as a starting point.

Exploring the seemingly contradictory fabric of our human condition, Amartey invites viewers to join him in this self implicating endeavour.

Preferring to work with mediums he is untrained in, to date his practice has incorporated chainmail making, printmaking, film, photography, ballet, fashion and wig making.
