Yinka Shonibare MBE’s solo exhibition Recreating the Pastoral opens at VISUAL, in Carlow, Ireland on 6 February. The exhibition draws the viewer through a series of installations which juxtapose contemporary political sensitivities with elements of elaborate 18th and 19th century European dress and courtly behaviour. The installations question Euro-centric histories, and are a powerful expression of the complexities inherent in contemporary discourse on post-colonialism and identity.

Recreating the Pastoral  is at VISUAL from 6 February - 19 June 2016
