Otobong Nkanga at Portikus


Relating ourselves to the vantages of Nkanga's sculptures flip between their synecdochal and real vision, from scales representation ans the real we walk on. The floor becomes both a vast representational plane modeling a continental scale, at the specific barren earth we stand on, a sort or vertiginous loop, and the models as representations as well as objects, territory on the map.
