About Na CHAINKUA REINDORF
To artist Na Chainkua Reindorf, the potential for storytelling is everywhere. Not just narratively, but in patterns, shapes, textures, and sounds. Working expertly in the realm of mixed media and myth-making — as she calls it — Na Chainkua presents often overlooked social, political, cultural and historical intricacies. She assembles materials such as acrylic, jute, sisal, wool and beads to create large-scale tapestries and immersive sculptural installations — including a series titled Mawu Nyonu which was showcased in Ghana’s National Pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennale. Her past works have been exhibited in institutions across the United States, in Illinois and New York, as well as in Lagos, Nigeria, and her hometown of Accra, Ghana. We chat with Na Chainkua to hear her breakdown of one of the most dynamic and resourceful cities in West Africa for her Accra Travel Playbook.
