El Anatsui is world renowned for his iconic wall sculptures of thousands of aluminium bottle-tops wired together with copper. Worked on by a team of assistants who crush, fold and pierce bottle-tops on workbenches and on smaller flats of wood, the repetitive and relentless force exerted on these surfaces over many years has resulted in a landscape of textured relief. These worktops were delivered to the Factum Arte studio to serve as the primary source materials for this new series of prints.
