Affinity Gallery presents Things Left Unsaid a bold new group exhibition featuring 20 works by Dianna Offor, Emmanuel Unaji, Joseph Aina and Stephen Langa, that opened on Sunday June 18th at the gallery’s space in Lagos.
Things Left Unsaid is an immersive exhibition that delves into the inherent human longing to be truly seen, understood, and acknowledged. It serves as a profound reflection on the consequences of our failure to engage in introspection and ask vital questions of ourselves and society. Within the exhibition’s realm, ignorance is stripped of its illusory comfort, exposing the weight of unresolved issues that linger. Central to the exhibition is a dynamic interplay between the artists and their works, with two artists embracing figurative art while the other two delve into the realm of abstraction. Each artist fearlessly confronts different facets of their internal worlds, allowing their personal narratives to intertwine with the broader tapestry of society. Through their diverse works, viewers are invited to embark on a transformative journey of observation, introspection, and departure, taking away a profound and meaningful experience.
