Lagos, Nigeria-based artist Temitayo Ogunbiyi explores the potential of playful interaction to address issues of migration and exchange, as well as material and social cultures.
The artist Temitayo Ogunbiyi, who lives in Lagos/Nigeria, explores the potential of playful interaction to explore topics such as migration and exchange, but also material and social cultures. Part of her project is a "Playground" that invites visitors to climb, shimmy and play in Solitude Park as early as May 21, 2023. The work links Lagos with Basel: the shapes of the steel bars trace the paths that connect the two cities. In October, a multimedia exhibition at the museum will tie in with this, presenting works on paper and interactive musical installations.
The project is being developed in cooperation with the Culturescapes festival, which will be organized around the theme of the "Sahara" in 2023.
