Otobong Nkanga at Portikus

Relating ourselves to the vantages of Nkanga's sculptures flip between their synecdochal and real vision, from scales representation and 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.
