Otobong Nkanga, acclaimed Nigerian multi-disciplinary artist, uses natural elements from the earth, (transmuting) working them into allegories of geographies, migration and the constructed values inherent to those spaces.
These materials serve as biographical depictions outside of their pseudo-scientific readings, the artist's careful observation giving voice to the struggle to maintain a clear foothold in our disrupted epoch.
Presented as a solo survey, this exhibition serves to crystalize a form of looking, to facilitate a way of reading these derivatives translated into patterns, disruptions and cycles.
