Arthouse - The Space is proud to present a solo exhibition of Victor Ekpuk, entitled Coming Home, April 9-30, 2016, at the Renault Showroom, 43B Akin Adesola Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Coming Home is the first major solo exhibition of Victor Ekpuk’s work in Nigeria in over a decade. After a four month residency with the Arthouse Foundation in 2015, this exhibition features his newest project using the city of Lagos as inspiration. In a departure from his normative practice, Ekpuk’s works in the exhibition experiment with three-dimensional forms, adopting the human head as a symbol for the physical and psychological experiences of daily life in Lagos.

Victor Ekpuk obtained his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ife, Nigeria in 1989. He developed a minimalist approach of reducing form to constituent lines, a technique he explored while working as a cartoonist for Daily Times, a leading Nigerian newspaper, in the 1990s.

His work has been exhibited in acclaimed international venues including the Krannert Art Museum (Illinois), the Fowler Museum (California),  the Museum of Art and Design (New York), the Newark Museum (New Jersey), the Smithsonian Institution (Washington, DC), the New Museum of Contemporary Art (New York), the Dakar Biennale (Senegal) and the Johannesburg Biennial (South Africa). Most recently, Ekpuk was featured in exhibitions at the Hood Museum at Dartmouth College and the 12th Havana Biennale in Cuba.
