Dike says spent 2 years to instal exhibition

Lagos – An artist, Ndidi Dike, currently exhibiting her works at the National Commission for Museums and Monuments (NCMM), Onikan, Lagos, says the installation of the exhibition took her two years to complete.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the exhibition titled: “State of the Nation,” which began on Feb. 8 will end on March 5.

Dike told NAN on Wednesday that the works on canvass were fuel pipes, jerry cans, slippers, stoves and wires.

She said that she went around and about everywhere picking up the materials she used for installing the exhibition.

“People thought I was going mad by asking for those junks or buying them.

“I went about collecting fuel pipes, jerry cans, disused rubber slippers, discarded stoves, wires, double-decker beds and wheel chairs.

“I repaired some of the items and some are just like as I got them,” she said.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”70560″]

Dike, who declined how much it cost her to gather the materials, said she was not particular about the monetary aspect but to drive home the current issues in the country.

“I don’t want to discuss the amount so as not to overshadow the message of the exhibition which is to display the level of economic degradation in the country.

“My aim is to highlight the major problems we are facing in the country, so that we can begin to address them,’’ she said.

According to her the exhibition is to play to the front burner the current economic situation in the country on how many Nigerians resort to junks to survive.

NAN reports that the exhibition was declared opened on Feb. 8 by the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nnaemeka Achebe, who urged Nigerians to join hands with government to solve Nigeria’s problems. (NAN)
