Artist Eric Gyamfi (1990, GH) uses a wide array of techniques to create visual narratives that sit somewhere in between autobiography and fiction.
This work is part of the series A Certain Bed, a semi-autobiographical visual narrative about the artist’s meanderings, following his unforeseen departure from his familial home. During this period of moving from place to place he created photo collages that form an introspective report of his nomadic experience. We see an endless succession of different rooms, beds and people. The documentation of these transitory spaces produces a mosaic of all the places and people the once artist called home, if only for a day or two. The work is suffused by a sense of both belonging and alienation and forms an introspective examination of what it means to have a home – or to lose it.

Eric Gyamfi (1990, Ghana) is the winner of the 13th Foam Paul Huf Award, which is awarded annually by an international jury to talented photographers under the age of 35.

Gyamfi was born in Ghana in 1990. He obtained a BA in Economics and Information Studies at the University of Ghana in 2014. He is currently pursuing an MFA at the Department of Painting and Sculpture of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. He was a fellow at the Photographers’ Master Class in Khartoum, Sudan (2016); Nairobi, Kenya (2017); and Johannesburg, South Africa (2018). He was an invited participant to the Nuku Studio Photography Workshops in 2016, and the World Press Photo West African Masterclass in 2017. He is a recipient of the 2016 Magnum Foundation Fund and a member of the Nuku studio in Ghana; a collective of visual storytellers dedicated reporting on issues around Africa. Gyamfi lives and works in Accra, Ghana.
