FOLD CRUMPLE CRUSH: THE ART OF EL ANATSUI
A FILM BY SUSAN VOGEL

Filmed over three years in Venice, Nsukka, and the United States, this is a powerful portrait of Africa’s most widely acclaimed contemporary artist El Anatsui.

FOLD CRUMPLE CRUSH: THE ART OF EL ANATSUI gives an insider’s view of the artist’s practice, the ingenious steps and thousands of hours of labor that convert used bottle tops into huge, opulent wall hangings. Here Anatsui explains how his artworks have become a marriage of painting and sculpture, objects that speak of African history but also reach for the ethereal—and he talks about his aspirations for artworks he has yet to make.
