From Here to When by Onyis Martin and Longinos Nagila, curated by Naijographia.

Opening: Thursday, April 4, 2019
Venue: Goethe Institute.
Time: 6 pm

Exhibition Dates: 04th – 23rd April 2019

Both a physical being—a living, talking, conscious, active individual—and a way-of-being in the world. The wandering subject stresses the fact that identity arises from multiplicity and dispersion… There is no body (and nobody) ‘except in movement.’

Stacy Hardy, Achille Mbembe Idiolect

The 21st Century has been referred to as the century of the migrant. Migrants, as opposed to other political figures—citizens, foreigners, elected political leaders— are defined by their constant displacement, their becoming-in-movement. The route of the journey shifts in speed, filled with moments of waiting and immobility, the process of migration involves insecurity of some kind over a duration of time.

From Here to When is an artistic exploration by Longinos Nagila and Onyis Martin into personal and social reasons for migration be they territorial, political, economic, or juridical, as they unfold in the long fabric of time. The artists’ itinerary includes dreams, memories, places never travelled and places that might be called home. By questioning notions of nationalism, place-bound social belonging, the movement of labour and more, the artisits hope to show that this century might not be as different from those that came before and how we could situate ourselves.

We are experimenting with the notion of the nautomat, which we learn from Raqs Media Collective, is a spaceship of the imagination. We hope the journey of our conversations, our actions, silences, might expand and intensify our attention to the world and our joys.
