Asiko presents a new body of work in which the past is brought to bear on the present. Moving beyond what might be considered a nostalgic tribute to a departed father, Asiko is the culmination of a journey of experimentation across disparate artistic media. By intermingling painting, photography, printing techniques as well as interactive installation, the artist attempts not only to conflate time and space but to highlight the power of technology as a marker and recorder of lived experiences and collective memory. In so doing, Kelani presents a family portrait, a moving personal story that acknowledges the universality of human relationships.
