ARTIST STATEMENT: National flags freeze the history and heritage of countries into one-dimensional statements. I produce mixed media flags and textile installations that are not unique to any land or people, but rather intertwine narratives of individual experiences in a global age, with collective memory and composite accounts of events across space and time. I am Nigerian-born and a naturalized U.S. citizen; my artistic practice draws on autobiographical material. My subject matter deals with shifts in perspective, reversible identities, and the intricate networks of threads connecting universal chronology and circumstances with our personal timelines and interactions as humans.
