The canvas exhibits a light buckling, this can likely be fixed with a restretch. There are four marking across the lower half of the canvas, as seen in the catalogue illustration, which could be inherent. The canvas exhibits some old creasing marks in the upper half of the canvas, this is in line with the nature of a found material. Very light specks of removable detritus in places. A couple of very faint scratches, the largest measuring 100mm along right edge. Inspection under UV light reveals no clear signs of restoration or repair. The work appears to be in very good original condition.

Donated by the artist

"The pioneering critical platform for visual art in Lagos, the Centre for Contemporary, Lagos has taken risks to propel the careers of numerous artists to significant international recognition. I am honoured to donate my work as a small gesture of support towards the longevity of this institution."


In her practice, Temitayo Ogunbiyi moves between drawing, painting, sculpture and installation. Her work responds to and forges dialogues between global current events, anthropological histories, and botanical cultures. Systems that capture, mediate, and direct the movement of people and matter is a recurring subject of investigation in her practice.


Living between two continents, the essential thing for her is to produce a work that is always connected to the space in which it is created. Her work questions the exhibition space by highlighting the relationships and ways of communication that are created between the object and its surroundings.


Trained at Princeton and Columbia University, Temitayo Ogunbiyi participated in the acclaimed 2012 group show curated by Bisi Silva entitled The Progress of Love, a transatlantic collaboration between the Pulitzer Arts Foundation, The Menil Collection in Houston, and the Centre for Contemporary Art, Lagos. She has exhibited in 2015 at the Jogjia Biennale in Indonesia, Dakar OFF Biennale in 2014, 10th Berlin Biennale in 2018 and 2nd Lagos Biennale in 2019. She is the recipient of several fellowships and awards, including a 2020-2021 Digital Earth Fellowship, a 2018 Smithsonian Artist in Research Fellowship and a 2014 Ford Foundation Fellowship.
