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.

    Ibrahim Mahama: Garden of Scars
    AMMODO ✕ Oude Kerk Amsterdam
    2022 - 2023

    Garden of Scars is the first solo exhibition in the Netherlands by Ghanese artist Ibrahim Mahama. For Amsterdam’s Oude Kerk, he creates an installation of around 800 memorial stones, consisting of casts of the church’s tombstones as well as pieces of floor from Fort Elmina in Ghana, a hub of trans-Atlantic slave trade.

    In doing so, he connects the family histories of merchants, captains and mayors buried in the Oude Kerk to those of enslaved Africans.

    In Youth, Imhof investigates the dark side of life. She questions dynamics of power and reflects on emotions such as loneliness, greed and the fear of missing out.
