Findings Through Principles of Phrenology, Literature, Sound and Advertising


As is wont when working alongside curators Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung and Elena Aguido, Asemota provides a selection of material among his findings and from conversations and exchanges with the curators. These materials, though not necessarily intended for an exhibition project, are described as an invitation to think with him on the concerns of the curatorial enquiry
