DESCRIPTION

Regina Agu’s recent work focuses on intersections of collective and personal history and the role they dictate for the physical body. She seeks out and explores hidden and forgotten histories through works on paper, installation and performance. For her exhibition at Lawndale Art Center, Agu looks to forms of self-representation (portraiture, adornment and personal objects) and the layered, residual traces left by these bodies in the built environment for inspiration. Site specific installations immerse the viewer in a topology drawn equally from organic patterns found in the natural world and those created specifically with a design aesthetic in mind.
