Àsìkò is a conceptual photographer whose practice is anchored by the interpolation of his emotional experiences as a Nigerian-born (and raised) British citizen. His work is motivated by increased self-awareness, authentic creative expression, and the development of a visual language that articulates new ways of understanding the liberatory possibilities of African diasporic identity. Asiko's work is ambitious and his images initiated by internal dialogue. Based on a broader commitment to faithfully honor and enrich the relevance of this vast and - as yet poorly understood - knowledge system and philosophy for contemporary global society. By applying an intrinsically sensual and feminist approach that centers the body as the subject through which he generates ideas about gendered power dynamics and violence, the boundaries of femininity and masculinity, spirituality and beauty, our relationship with nature and ultimately belonging.

 

The Women's Code 2018 In the Woman Code I delve into the symbolic meanings and design of Adire textiles; these are resist-dyed fabrics made up of complex symbols and patterns that convey specific meanings. The artwork encodes messages and proverbs that were used to convey information and influence the course of events. During the history of Adire, women were not allowed to speak and express their opinions in public by the ruling class of men in the society. Symbols of admiration on cloth were used as a mechanism of communication and expression among the Yoruba women of southwestern Nigeria to overcome these barriers of patriarchy. In the work I remove the symbols of the fabric on the feminine form and emphasize its true meaning and origin. It is an allegory of the woman who carries her subjugated voice and beliefs ​and expresses; it is a symbolic expression of her true self and the broader community and language of women.

 

The artwork is available in metallic print in 30 x 20 inches (3 editions) and 40 x 26 inches (3 editions).
