This installation is an investigation conducted by BothAnd Group into Indigenous land management practices, situated in landscapes in Ireland and Nigeria. The reciprocal coupling of these two landscapes across time and geography seeks to advance a renewed understanding of local ecologies, informed by Indigenous ways of knowing and management of lands. As Britain’s first colony – and therefore, capitalism’s first frontier – the Irish landscape offers an instructive example. Drawings are used to look closely at the Indigenous ‘roinn dáil’ land management practice of Ireland’s past landscapes – prior to, and in the process of, colonisation.
Achille Mbembe describes the African continent as “the last frontier of capitalism”. In Nigeria, Indigenous land management practices are examined, with video projections capturing the practices of transhumance and companion species taking place across Nigeria’s landscape.
These are conversations which pose, address, and open further avenues for research and discussion on the emergence of alternative agricultural futures.
