The artist Zak Ové’s army of Nubian masked figures, installed at Somerset House for the 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair, is destined for the Saudi Arabian-born collector Hussam Otaibi’s planned sculpture park in Berkshire, west of London, which is expected to open in two years’ time. Black and Blue: The Invisible Man and The Masque of Blackness (2016), which was bought for £300,000, will join works by Eduardo Paolozzi, Nathaniel Rackowe and Piotr Lakomy in the park.
