"This or That ?": Sesse Elangwe Ngeseli

From May 25 to July 27, 2024193 Gallery presents "This or That ?", a solo show by Sesse Elangwe Ngeseli. The artist plunges visitors into an introspective biography full of profound questioning. “This or That ?” is a reflection on emotional instability and the dilemmas of everyday life. Do we necessarily have the answer to everything ? Sesse interrogates the need to answer every question, and the compulsion to make choices to satisfy others rather than oneself. This series of works invites us to reflect on the need to find answers to our own inner questions.


Based in San Antonio, Texas (USA), Sesse Elangwe (b. 1994) is a visual artist originally from Buea, Cameroon. His remarkable paintings are the result of deep reflection on his personal and collective personal and collective encounters, which reflect his cultural and sociopolitical environment. Drawing on the aesthetics of realism, pop art and surrealism, Elangwe uses portraiture to critically document some of the conditions experienced by black people worldwide. The topicality of his acrylic subjects is often in dialogue with the liveliness of the colours colors he uses.
