Oyalokun, una historia de mar a tierra

Being her first solo exhibition in Portugal, the gallery has decided to bring to the public her most recent productions, which include a video art piece, an installation and seven black and white photographs. Derived from an organic collection of works, we could consider the video art Oyalokun, una historia de mar a tierra [Oyalokun, a story from sea to land] as the conceptual and experimental root from which the remaining pieces emanate. From the performativity found at the intersection of contemporary and folkloric dance, the video seeks to emphasize the promise of freedom and spiritual fulfillment hidden in the depths of the sea. Source of life and destruction, calm and violence, the unfathomable mysteries of Olókun are complexified in the possibility and permissibility of being penetrated by other spiritual and natural elements.
