Zak Ové

Zak works in film, photography and sculpture and his work is a melding of visual influences from Africa, Europe, the 20th and 21st centuries, along with nods to Victoriana.

His father Horace Ové was the first ever black British film director to make a feature-length movie.

The Yorkshire Sculpture Park features a spectacular ‘army’ made up of eighty-two-metre-high figures, each based on a small statue given to him as a child. The piece deals partly with the African diaspora – the figures stand out of context, suggesting those with a connection to the continent but born abroad.
