Jude Anogwih: Emittere, WAITING

Movement is essential in the course of history. Hence, this exhibition by Jude Anogwih is part of a series of works from 2009 to date. It interrogates the concept of movement, mobility, migration and border. Emittere, WAITING (2012) reflects on the dynamics in Africa and Africans' forced, clandestine and more recently, willingness to transverse the versed landscape to new destinations. The instability of our land as well as the fluidity of social, economic and political ideas reflects the perpetual migration of Africans to foreign lands. As the shores set the sail of Africa's resources, her coastlines await your return. We are waiting. Movement is essential in the course of history.
