> DESCRIPTION

For her solo show at Lumen Travo gallery, Otobong Nkanga proposes a body of works linked with research and various projects done in 2011 and 2012.

In 2011 Nkanga started exploring ways of working with woven textile in combination with the techniques of drawing and photography.

“However long the night, the dawn will break” summarizes the state of creation, being in a space of struggles: at some point things start to make sense and finally one day everything falls in place, maybe not as you had planned it but obviously as it is supposed to be.

Nkanga uses various media such as drawing, sculptures, installations, performances and photography to process her research material and to combine this with autobiographical references in order to create a collage of fragmented narratives.
