Untitled. 2017


I use mostly archival materials I collect from myriad communities and work on them to create fabulous installations with volunteers from migrant communities. Installations which speak into the lives of the communities I work with. My installations conceptually and symbolically response to stark problems of architectures and structures facing Africa in particular and the world at large in the wake of global migrant crisis.
