The Ens Project is an ongoing multipartite artwork informed by Igue head ceremony of the Edo people, Victorian modernity and Walter Benjamin’s seminal text on art and advancements in technology.


Phase 1 “First Principles” (2005 - 2008) encompass photographs, sculptures, drawings and performances developed over six stages in appraisal of the project’s reference frame.


Phase 2 (2009 – 2012) relates the transfiguration of a character called “The Handmaiden” in anticipation of Phase 3 “Eo ipso” (on-going) and the live art work that will conclude Asemota’s involvement in the Project.
