    Ruby Amanze – The Adventures of An Alien

    As artists of Nigerian descent who have spent most of their lives living, migrating and journeying across continents, Ruby Onyinyechi Amanze, Wura-Natasha Ogunji and Nnenna Okore’s individual and collective movements, histories, memories and perspectives integrate to highlight points of intersection and overlapping. This motion is
    referenced in the directional crossing of fibres on the axis of a loom.

    Warp + Weft; The Journey of Being embodies both a metaphysical crossing of time and space, as well as the material relationship of each artist to the physical weaving process. In this particular chapter of their lives, the artists are here in Nigeria, for an extended period of time. For them, the experience marks the onset of a journey of reintroduction, rediscovery and reconnection to their ancestral place of origin. Inevitably, as the artists navigate the unique nuances of their longitude and latitude, their current artistic
    explorations are intricately woven into the warp and weft of the here and now.
