Taiye Idahor @ Tyburn Gallery

9 February 2018 - 9 May 2018

Òkhùo, is a solo exhibition by Taiye Idahor, who traces her heritage to the ancient empire of Benin City, Nigeria, whose history and iconography she references in her practice. Working within media as diverse as sculpture, collage, drawing, and installation, she explores layers of themes which are simultaneously universal and intimate, expressing female and African identity within the broader contexts of history, tradition and globalisation. The title of the exhibition, Òkhùo, translates to ‘Woman’ in the Bini language of Benin City. In this body of work, Idahor presents a reflection on women and power through the iconic figure of the Iyoba, mother of the king of Benin City.
