Hybrid Spirit

15 October 2020 - 15 November 2020

The artworks on the show were produced in South Africa during a time of intense immersion, personal and artistic challenge to confront the unknown, as well as to push the boundaries of Adejoke’ s primary material – traditional African brooms – in exploration of the (human/ female/ hybrid) figure. They combine to form a new poetic aesthetic, which departs from her previous works in their minimalism. They embody a power in their simplicity.

Implicit in hybridity is the notion of queering dominant space or, accepting both sides of the soul which are both masculine and feminine, or neither. Adejoke explored this further through movement/performance and via collaboration with Clint Strydom (South African lens-based photographic artist and photo essayist with a profound gift for capturing humanity) in a series of photographic works taken at Nirox Sculpture Park and several video works. As a result, a clear unified message finds a common thread through all her mediums. The exhibition and the works challenge audiences to look through and past the physical, manifesting the Spirit and to discover their hidden essence – destiny.
