Vigo presents historic works on paper by Ibrahim El-Salahi with a specific focus on a particularly fertile period of work from 1976–77 following his release from jail, an incredibly influential experience and marker in terms of the future direction of his artistic output. 1977 was a creative moment, full of the joy at regaining his freedom after being wrongly accused. It was also an end of an era and the start of a new period, marking the last time he lived in Sudan full time.
