El Anatsui’s lifelong exploration of media led to his shimmering tapestries of reclaimed bottle tops. Combining film and still images, Susan Vogel follows Anatsui’s quest from its beginnings in the intellectual art world of Nigeria to his inventive studio practice, culminating in the monumental installations of recent years.
