Signs of Love
Ama Dogbe
10th February – 23rd March, 4th–13th April 2024


‘Signs of Love’ is the first solo exhibition by British-Ghanaian artist, Ama Dogbe commissioned by Modern Painters, New Decorators. Ama creates an ambitious installation where videos, paintings and sculptures explore home and family, inspired by extraterrestrial life, archaeological excavations and childhood memories. Our exhibition space will become a garden-like world where visitors uncover talismans, relics and icons. Immersive audio by musician Louis Jack transforms the gallery into a dreamscape of hip-hop, electronic and ambient music. The project started with a series of workshops with families and young people, where Ama explored symbols and memories connected to home through drawing and digital techniques. The project is funded by Arts Council England, Leicestershire County Council and Charnwood Borough Council.

Ama Dogbe is a British-Ghanaian artist who builds video games, digital animations and audio-visual installations exploring autobiographical and utopian themes. Her recent work uses interactive virtual world-building as a tool to examine family, identity and the internet. She has created digital forests, sky mazes, and gleaming platforms that audiences can explore online. Her processes often use self-taught and collaborative techniques to produce experimental and unconventional outcomes. Ama has been commissioned by Spike Island, Bristol (2023) and tiata fahodzi, Watford (2022). She has also exhibited with Fermynwoods Contemporary Art (2022), East Bristol Contemporary (2022) and Attenborough Arts Centre, Leicester (2021).
