Selected Group Exhibitions

2017
1000 Patronen, Texture Museum Belgium

A group exhibition featuring the work of Ntiense Eno Amooquaye, alongside works by an international group of artists including Louise Bourgeois, Kimsooja, Emmanuella Flandre and Morton Feldman shown at the Texture Museum, Kortrijk, whose collections explore the heritage of the flax, lace and linen industry.

For 1000 Patronen, Amooquaye was invited by curators ‘Wit.h’ to exhibit hand screen printed works on linen and a printed silk dress. These works created the setting for her performance of a newly published collection of ‘Dress Poems’. Her poem ‘The Model’ addresses the image of the fashion model, ‘Standing on the stage/ She is Juliet/ Reading her own script.’ The second poem ‘Flax like an Ocean’ explores themes from Amooquaye’s wide reading about the history of linen and lace production and also the shared history of Europe, in particular the figure of Matilda of Flanders who became Queen of England in 1051.
