Galerie Barbara Thumm proudly presents „Unlimited Dining in Chaos“, featuring exceptional works of Kenyan artist Kaloki Nyamai.

Nyamai’s monumental series is now for the first time on view in Berlin, following his recent presentation at Art Basel Unlimited in Basel 2023. Each of the three pieces, measuring approximately 6 x 4 m, challenges traditional artistic norms, persuading viewers to explore the intricate layers of human experience.

Nyamai’s understanding of painting as a sculptural medium blurs the lines of traditional painting, mixing acrylic paint, layered collages, and stitchings in sisal rope on the canvas. These large creations hang suspended from the gallery’s ceiling, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in their narratives.
