Péju Alatise - Memoirs of the Forgotten
'Memoirs of the Forgotten' is the first exhibition at the gallery by Nigerian artist Péju Alatise (b. 1975 Lagos, Nigeria).
"There is no encounter without ‘cultural contamination'. Culture is a living organism, in continuous mutation, which reinvents itself by passing through the phases of decline, loss of direction and renewal, as determined by its external contacts...No society of sound mind would claim the absolute purity of its culture.” - N'Gone Fall - Things Fall apart.
Alatise is a fellow at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art and the 2017 winner of the FNB Art Prize in Johannesbur was exhibited at the 57th Venice Biennale (2017).
