PAPAIŸO X Goat Curry Gallery by Ania Freer
Ania Freer is a documentary filmmaker and curator based in Kingston, Jamaica. In 2019 she curated her first group exhibition entitled ‘All That Don’t Leave’ to mark the end of a six-month curatorial fellowship through New Local Space Kingston. The show focused on unique craft practices and oral histories from seven artists working across Jamaica outside of mainstream knowledge. As a curator, Ania aims to give space to makers who have historically been marginalized from gallery spaces. Learn more about Goat Curry Gallery here

Bamboo King created his first animal head in the early 2000s, inspired by a bamboo root he dug up while collecting materials for a building project. In 2015 Bamboo King moved to a property along the coast in Annotto Bay where he established a sculpture garden using found objects collected from the beach. Stacked coal castles decorate the perimeter around his home accompanied by drift wood and animal head rods. Bamboo King’s work has a strong material basis which speaks to his deep curiosity about nature and the unique ways materials fit, balance and bind together.
