SOLO SHOW – STATUES ALSO BREATHE

Art Twenty One, Lagos
Through February 4, 2023

A collaborative exhibition “Statues Also Breathe” just opened at Art Twenty One in Lagos, Nigeria, unveiling a major project honoring the Chibok girls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram from their high school in Northern Nigeria in 2014 — many of whom are still missing. The project comprises 108 portraits in clay, modeled after the missing girls imaged in the style of iconic ancestral Ife heads.
