Otobong Nkanga, Fragments

Lumen Travo is delighted to show an overview of works made by Otobong Nkanga during 2014 and 2015, entitled, “Fragments”. Nkanga, recipient of the prestigious Yanghyun Prize 2015, will show a combination of drawings, photographs and video.

Since 2009 she has been creating a series of drawings called “Social Consequences”. She observes social and topographical changes in her environment and the complexities that are embedded in these experiences. She explores how resources such as soil, earth, and its potential worth are subjected to regional and cultural scrutiny. Her work invites the viewer to engage in a dialogue about the intangibility of identity, memory, perception, and she observes how these change when presented through a specific arrangement and narration.
