I started working on this project during my time at the artist residency with the Arthouse Foundation in 2020. The body of work “How close can it get?“ interrogates the limits of closeness in relation to dense urban populations. Inspired by the movements of people within the city of Lagos, imagining both
real and imagined spaces. I referenced currencies, numbers and analytical data, overlapping different sources and modes of technological information.
Combining texts, writings and inscriptions using an embossing technique, along with drawings, digital collage and stamping while mapping the city from a nuanced perspective. The body of work points to how people’s experiences of personal space are dictated by socio-economic conditions and wealth inequalities.
