Samsung today unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S20, a new series of flagship devices that fundamentally change the way we capture and experience our world. The Galaxy S20 series introduces a brand-new camera architecture that combines AI with Samsung’s largest image sensor yet for stunning image quality. 

Along with the camera, the Galaxy S20 makes the experience of everything we love to do with our phones, easier and better—enjoy personalised music for every moment of the day, watch videos the way they are meant to be seen and play console-style games on-the-go.

“As we enter this new decade, how we communicate and how we experience the world around us has evolved. Samsung is, therefore, providing a next-generation device for transforming people’s lives.

 With an incredible AI-powered camera, you can capture the moments as they happen and connect more seamlessly with the people you love” said Eugene Nahm, Managing Director of Samsung Electronics West Africa, Ghana.



CHANGING HOW WE CAPTURE

Now, more than ever, we capture our lives and tell our stories through our smartphones—and that is why the camera is the single-most-important feature for consumers purchasing a new smartphone. Designed for the way we live, the Galaxy S20 introduces an entirely new camera system—powered by AI and with our biggest image sensor yet—to bring out the best in every image and every moment.
 

Details in Stunning Clarity: The Galaxy S20’s camera offers super-high resolution (108MP for the Galaxy S20 Ultra; 64MP for the Galaxy S20 and S20+) to bring out the details with stunning clarity. The Galaxy S20 Ultra takes things a step further by combining nine pixels into one at the sensor level for higher quality images in low light, using cutting-edge binning technology.

 Pro-Grade Filming Capability: The Galaxy S20 offers stunning 8K video shooting, so users can capture their world in true-to-life colour and quality. Even the bumpiest videos look like they were shot using a gimbal, thanks to Super Steady and its anti-rolling stabilisation and AI motion analysis. And when you are done shooting, stream your video to a Samsung QLED 8K TV and enjoy a best-in-class viewing experience.
 

Groundbreaking Zoom Capability: With the Galaxy S20’s Space Zoom technology, even when you are far away, you can zoom in close. Use up to 30X zoom on the Galaxy S20 and S20+, or step-up to the S20 Ultra’s revolutionary folded lenses with 10x lossless zoom for 100x Space Zoom. With advanced crop-zoom technology, S20 users can also capture a shot, crop it and edit it more easily, while maintaining the amazing quality.

Single Take, Multiple Possibilities: Single Take lets you stay in the moment, while you capture the moment. The Galaxy S20 can capture a number of photo and videos, such as live focus, cropped, ultra wide and more, and use AI to recommend the best shots.

Streaming: Because of the Galaxy S20’s professional-grade camera, Netflix and Samsung partnered to put the Galaxy S20 in the hands of renowned directors to capture exclusive content for Samsung users. Also, you can search and play Netflix programs by simply asking Bixby.

Gaming: The Galaxy S20 series takes mobile gaming to the next level. With a 120Hz display, you’ll experience incredibly smooth gaming. Later this spring, Samsung partner, Microsoft, will launch its popular Forza Street in the Galaxy Store, marking the first time the game is coming to mobile. 

Combined with a fast processor, 12 GB of RAM, audio tuned by AKG and game booster, working in the background to optimise settings for peak performance, the Galaxy S20 offers a powerful gaming experience.

Ghanaian Artist Cornelius Annor is now represented in Europe by MARUANI MERCIER Gallery

Ghanaian artist Cornelius Annor and his works will now be represented in Europe by Maruani Mercier Gallery

“We are proud to announce the European representation of Ghanaian artist Cornelius Annor. Depicting everyday Ghanaian sceneries, the emerging artist Cornelius Annor combines acrylic paint with fabric transfers to create large figurative paintings. The artist’s research revolves around family history, through family photo albums, as such exploring moments in time, from pre-colonial Ghana and Post-independent Ghana to our contemporary era,” reads part of the announcement by the company on Instagram.

He also added;  I would like what I am creating right now to reach people of the highest stature so that they can see the positive imagery of Africa or Ghana because most of the positive images of black people focus on the African American story. I wanted to create positivity around here too so people can change their view about our beautiful continent.

Cornelius Annor was born in 1990 in Accra, Ghana. He is known as a figurative painter depicting everyday life often departing from childhood memories and family history. He completed his fine art studies at Ghanatta College of Art and Design, where fellow artists Amoako Boafo, Kwesi Botchway, Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe and Emmanuel Taku also studied. From an early age, Annor developped a passion for painting, sketching his family, friends and even strangers. Annor lives and works in Ghana where he established C.Annor studio, a space dedicated to encouraging and supporting young talents and upcoming artists.

Depicting everyday Ghanaian sceneries, the emerging artist Cornelius Annor combines acrylic paint with fabric transfers to create large figurative paintings. The artist’s research revolves around family history, through family photo albums, as such exploring moments in time, from pre-colonial Ghana and Post-independent Ghana to our contemporary era. The characters in his paintings are old and young, male and female, sharing different emotions, often in the context of gathering. Incorporating objects and clothes from different periods, Annor plays with memory, history and temporality.

“For me archiving as a form has the potential to open up discussions on lost and forgotten histories and its politics. And I intend to bring into presence these past histories through my works as a way of creating a room of memory which can migrate my audience to a particular moment in time and reflect on themselves.”

Annor invites the viewer to connect with the figures in ambiguous yet completely present and familiar ways. These seemingly ordinary moments of intimacy, gathering and entertainment also set the focus on the details of his fabric transfer technique as well as his photography collages merging tradition and contemporaneity in his work. Departing from archival photographs from family albums or from the internet, he reconfigures his references using photoshop with the idea of inter-migrating cultures, identities and histories. The combination of collages with painting disrupts the depth and perspective within the painting. Through his distinctive practice Cornelius Annor attempts to change our reading of history.

Annor’s work has been exhibited throughout Africa and the U.S., including at the Ghana National Museum and the Accra Art Center.

About MARUANI MERCIER Gallery

Founded in 1995, MARUANI MERCIER now represents twenty contemporary artists alongside it’s programme of museum quality historical exhibitions whilst continuing to build on the legacy of a number of renowned estates. Showing established artists alongside young and emerging new talent, the gallery promotes an artistic dialogue between different generations.

Many of the gallery´s artists participate in international exhibitions and are today placed in some of the most important museums and private collections around the world.

Initially MARUANI MERCIER´s primary programme focused on celebrated American artists from the 1980s who, working within the medium of painting and sculpture, sought to reflect the aesthetic and social concerns of their time. Including; Ross Bleckner, Francesco Clemente, Ron Gorchov, Peter Halley, Jonathan Lasker, and Sue Williams.

Over the years, the gallery looked to a new generation of artists who, working within different media, also addressed topical subjects relating to history, politics, the environment, and questions of identity and authorship. Amongst these, Radcliffe Bailey, Esiri Erheriene-Essi and Hank Willis Thomas examine topics surrounding Black history and culture whilst Lyle Ahston Harris looks at societal constructs of sexuality and race. Jaclyn Conley´s beautiful and nostalgic paintings present a poignant rumination on the social and political concerns of American life, whilst Tony Matelli confronts issues of isolation and impermanence with humour and irony.


In 2001, MARUANI MERCIER expanded to include an additional gallery in the historic art town Knokke followed in 2018 by a 15,000 sq ft exhibition space in Zaventem called THE WAREHOUSE. In addition to the celebrated exhibitions held there, in 2021 THE WAREHOUSE hosted Kwesi Botchway and Cornelius Annor at its artist residency.
