1986 – 2013 (2013)

ECA EPS ART

having previously produced work under my real name, the pseudonym eca eps emerged in 2013 during a research visit to turunku, southern zaria in the north of nigeria, where i was confronted by hausa men for not veiling. i was required to cover my jeans and t-shirt with a black abaya or face mob justice. recalling similar incidents in which violence has been imparted on women who disobey the hisbah (sharia morality police), the tension of the moment and the offending outfit was captured in a frozen display, lasting long beyond the point of confrontation.
