Ori Gallery is pleased to present our inaugural art exhibition Elements of Reclamation.

Elements, considers the work of five black artists coming together to challenge ideas of homogeny and create a breeding ground for reclamation. Reproducing what once was and revealing in, what is, full and pregnant with narratives ripe in complexity, joyousness, the playful, the nonsensical, the bothered and unbothered ways of being. These elements of reclamation expand beyond the single unit of body and ideas of possession. It encompasses place, culture, community, past, present and future. It is a coming together of a body of bodies conscious of their context. It is a body thinking of itself.
