In Own Image 'series', 2018
Material (plaster, groundnut shells, beads, plastic hair extensions, textile fabric, fruit, cowry shells, glass and Nigerian shilling coin, raffia)
A series of hand gestures manifested as sculpture inspired by universal and Nigerian pidgin slangs as well as personal experiences and fictional characters.
The slangs and gestures ‘Waka!, Chop am!, Fuck you!, Fist of power and Surrender,’ were selected as gestures turned sculptures to project an exploration of the subjects; identity, memory, trauma, spirituality and displacement through this project.
