New Work - Mixed Medium
Jamiu Agboke - Blah Blah Blur
Agboke is a multi-disciplinary artist, and his practice is a continuous inquiry into his body’s locality in space through observational painting and drawing, photography and installation. He uses his body in conjunction with various objects and subjects and explores the configuration and complexity of his identity.
Agboke describes his installation and photography as a form of performative exorcism. Momentarily dislodging certain beliefs and preconceived ideas, these ideas collide, suspended in some emotional hyperspace, a stillness ensues, giving rise to a new beginning and a fresh encounter. The work is refined through crudeness. Everything comes together stroke by stroke moment to moment, mummified in stillness and articulated through attention.
