6 pm Performance by Wura-Natasha Ogunji: If I loved you
7 pm Artist’s and Curator’s Talk with Wura-Natasha Ogunji and Eva Barois De Caevel
If I loved you is inspired by Frida Kahlo’s 1940 painting Self-Portrait with Cropped Hair. The performance poses questions about physical beauty and its destruction but also about loss, change and the dynamics of seeing and being seen.
In her solo exhibition Every Mask I Ever Loved at the ifa Gallery Berlin Wura-Natasha Ogunji presents a series of newly commissioned drawings and performances – including re-creations of her performances Sweep, The Kissing Mask, and If I loved you – thereby continuing her exploration of the presence of women in both public and private space.
Talk held in English.
