Footnotes

  • LITERATURE:
    Spring, Angaza Afrika: African Art Now (London 2008), illustrated p. 249

    "This mixed-media work comprises discarded computer parts, bones, beads, small etching plates and incised metal panels arranged on perpendicular jute-fibre strips to suggest a formal connection with the numerous narrow-strip weaving traditions of Nigeria in particular and of West Africa in general. The work draws attention to the erosion of culture, but also to the regenerative powers of ancient traditions." (Ibid.)
