Exhibition: Utopia by Longinos Nagila, Jul. 7-23 2017 @ Simba Corp Apire Centre – Waiyaki Way

About
It’s horrible when people are only interested in buying labels, because it doesn’t bring them the happiness they think it will. – Miuccia Prada (Italian Fashion Designer)

Luxury is a state of mind. – L’Wren Scott (American Fashion Designer)

In this conceptual installation, Longinos Nagila looks at the relationship between the buyer and seller who consume luxury goods.

Nagila uses the conversation surrounding migrants to Europe and the fake goods they sell, specifically on the streets of Italy, to people who yearn for an impression that they can’t afford.

His work explores the idea of a “new utopia,” a better world based on what luxury goods promise. This may be employment for the migrants who sell fake bags, or the impression of wealth/ status to the buyer of this fake luxury good.

Both buyer and seller are in search of this bigger dream at whatever cost and both buyer and seller are in some way linked, part slave – part dreamer to the life of fake “luxury.” This alternative utopia is played out on the open street where both dreamers are equalised and at the same time where their vulnerabilities are exposed. The seller is in constant fear of being arrested by the police and the buyer is in constant fear of being spotted buying a fake “luxury” good.

Nagila taps into his past as a construction worker and a rural – urban migrant (Busia to Nairobi) who eventually travelled and lived in Italy.

The exhibition is the most extensive of his work and features sculptural pieces, video art and paintings.
