ROBEL-TEMESGEN-2

Tiwani Contemporary now represents Robel Temesgen (b.1987, Ethiopia) and is pleased to announce his first UK solo exhibition. The exhibition comprises a series of new paintings and works on paper inspired by the longstanding Ethiopian belief of adbar and its associated rituals. In Amharic, the term ‘adbar’ refers to the embodiment of protective spirits within various elements of the natural landscape, such as lakes, mountains, rocks or trees. Trees possessing adbar, for instance, are strictly protected and believed to act as a link between people and the spirit world. They can serve as shelter, places of worship and meeting points around which to discuss community matters. Temesgen grew up in Dessie, north-east Ethiopia, where adbar was commonly practised.
