Abba.T. Makama: Dodorowski’s Artefacts from our Future Past
Untitled, Lagos, Nigeria 06 Sep 2020 - 06 Oct 2020
Abba .T. Makama, Artefact I.
“Dodorowski travelled far into the future and ended up in the Past. I meet my ancestors, and they shared these symbols, these stories, these artefacts. I don’t know what they are or what they mean but I can feel them. The feeling is uncanny but familiar. What I do know is, civilisation has lost its true path and the answers could possibly be in these artefacts.”
The Dodorowski’s Artefacts from our Future Past exhibition will be produced and presented by A Whitespace Creative Agency with the foreword written by Niki Cryan.
