i was invited by curator ann j. lewis to participate in her 2016 new york group show systemic equality, in which artists with socially-engaged practices examined power, race and civil rights in america. since those political contexts are much more pronounced in the states than in lagos or london, i produced a piece on self-policing by using text and language to open up reflective ways of moving the dialogue beyond existing tropes of outward projection, shifting it towards personal responsibility and accountability. the piece is presented at eye level with a reflective glaze, shifting complicity onto the viewer as s/he encounters the work.
