From February 3rd – 21st, Omenka Gallery will present ‘Power Show’, an exhibition by multimedia artist Ayo Akinwande. The show will examine the nuances of “power” in the context of Nigeria where electrical power cuts are a daily occurrence and fuel shortages are common even as the nation is rich in oil. Inspired by Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s song of the same title, the exhibition also examines power in the sense of authority and its corruptibility, especially where these multiple forms of power overlap.
Ayo Akinwande holds a degree in architecture from Covenant University, Nigeria. Better known as a multimedia artist, Akinwande experiments with colour and black-and-white in his creative process and storytelling. Employing archival materials such as newspaper prints and posters, to engage with memory and history, he also seeks to expand his expressive and thematic scope by exploring the events of daily life through critical views of the social, political and cultural, from a contemporary Nigerian context. In 2015, Ayo Akinwande held two solo exhibitions Women of Africa in Athens, Greece and Boju Boju in Lagos, Nigeria. In 2016, he participated in the Centre for Contemporary Art Lagos’ ASIKO Art Residency in Addis-Ababa.
He was also a participant in the Lagos Biennial, as well as in What’s Inside Her Never Dies group exhibition at the Yeelen Gallery in Miami, United States. In this interview he discusses his forthcoming exhibition Power Show at the Omenka Gallery in Lagos.
