"Weight" is an upcoming online exhibition of photographs by Ukraine-based artist Emmanuel Achusim that will appear at AS | Artists Studios on Artsy from November 17th to December 17th, 2017.

Achusim is 19 years old, from Nigeria and utilizes himself as a point, an index to face the weight of white and its effect on the world.
While white pushes out darkness, it also dilutes color. Achusim transforms this formalist detail into a metaphor for individual endurance.
This exhibition that will appear on Artsy is made possible by the team at ello.co, Paul Budnitz, Mark Gelband and Amber Young who hosted the @ Studio Artist Invite for AS | Artists Studios.
