About Ammodo

We initiate, develop and support projects in the visual arts, performing arts and sciences. Artists and scientists often see things before other people do. They identify social trends, extend boundaries and make revolutionary discoveries. By providing artists and scientists with the space and time to really immerse themselves in their work, and by helping to showcase that work, we seek to stimulate the development of the arts and sciences.

    Exhibition
    06 May - 21 August 2022
    Kunstinstituut Melly

    In the Solo Duets series, Kunstinstituut Melly presents two solo exhibitions simultaneously. This iteration shows work by Ayesha Hameed and Ane Graff.

    London-based artist Ayesha Hameed presents Brown Atlantis, her first solo exhibition in the Netherlands. She invites practitioners in the field of sonic art, music, and performative thought to explore the correlations between bodies from the African diaspora and South Asia, given their shared experience of oceanic colonial routes.

    Norwegian artist Ane Graff also presents her first solo exhibition in the Netherlands: The Wound in Its Entanglements. Her sculptures are inspired by feminist new materialism and natural sciences. Her artworks invite a rethinking of our material reality and investigate themes such as ecology and mental health.
