‘We’ are curious about the possibilities of a non-linear investigation of contemporary contextual identity on the African continent, and more specifically in West African states.

‘We’ feel as though we are the future even though we are repeatedly consigned to the past.

‘We’ identify the potential in things uninterrupted. A series of moments and spaces from the future of our past.

‘We’ search for the space and time that creates the moment… for the object to arise.
