Art twenty one invites you to the opening reception of "Index season ii" by renowned mixed media artist Olu Amoda on Saturday, March 25, 2017.
"Index Season ii" is a solo art exhibition by Amoda. The exhibition will open at Art Twenty One, Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, from March 28 to June 25 featuring the artist’s newest body of works created over the past two years.
Amoda’s sculptures combine discarded metal fragments to form hybrid figurative and abstract installations.
In Index Season ii, Olu Amoda uses leaves as a metaphor to address the notion of a nation undergoing political impasse. Creating metal sculptures that evoke the changing colours of the four seasons, Amoda compares the individual leaves to human relationships, bunched together in social interconnectedness. As an isolated object, the leaves are meticulously sculpted to show their unique shapes and characteristics.
Amoda attempts to critically draw the audience’s attention to the global crisis of political gridlock plaguing the world today, suggesting that we must consider humanity as an ever-evolving process that shares affinity with one another.
