Oluwasola Kehinde Olowo-Ake
This project is a self-reflective piece of my own encounters of what seems to me, to be a lack of black communal culture here in Vancouver. It is also a depiction of the barriers I experienced within a community I was a part of when a disturbing unwillingness to create space for black (us) sufficed. Ahọn Dudu is me, a character in my stories and my Yorùbá subjectivity that lives and exists in Vancouver and together we will lead you through the barriers we have uncovered and experienced . We will do this through performance, dance, garment construction, poetry and Yorùbá storytelling.
I invite you to come and experience Ahọn Dudu’s exhibition here.
