Event Details

The exhibition, “a divination of enjoyment: extended play (EP),” incorporates the Ghanaian folklore of Ananse the Spider and explores Black cosmologies of West African origin. The use of water and wood symbolizes the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and the gyli/balafon (xylophone) respectively. Through water divination, the exhibition features an immersive installation by nii.a.k and a group of collaborators. The installation explores the ocean as a reflection of the Earth and poses the question: What can we learn from the world’s reflection during a season of crisis and celebration? By subverting the historical colonial meaning of Christian holidays in Ghana during December-January, the exhibition aims to raise public awareness about the significance of reparations for people of the Black diaspora.
