Includes a Hanes Visiting Artist Lecture, October 14, 7pm, Zoom. In Land/Min(e)dscapes, Abraham O. Oghobase presents work from an ongoing engagement with land, history, and representation. In 2016, traveling alone and equipped with his camera, Oghobase’s movements across the bare grasslands and ancient rock formations of the Jos, Plateau in north-central Nigeria were unplanned and intuitive. The photographs produced are evidence of various aspects of this spontaneous dialogue with the natural environment scarred by past and present human mining pursuits. The scenes have been further reimagined over five years of Oghobase engaging and experimenting with materiality and form in his practice, most recently through an evolving abstract language combining photocopy, collage, and repetition. The exhibit can be viewed throught the galleries glass front wall.
