Peter Ojingiri - Encountering the Disrupted
Further to Peter Ojingiri’s solo exhibition Encountering the Disrupted, (Accra, 2022), Gallery 1957 is proud to present a continuation of the same body of work, expanding unto the artist’s most recent experimentations.
Ojingiri deepens the subject of The Disrupted, previously defined in his paintings as those who remained home or stayed in the context of slavery and colonisation of Nigeria, as opposed to The Departed, forced to abandon the motherland.
All in all, this exhibition addresses the same questions but expands their territories; it is at the same time the expansion of Ojingiri’s research on his theme, i.e., the act of encountering The Disrupted and the newly found desire for it to be developed through abstraction.
