Never restricting himself to one medium, the Ethiopian multi-hyphenate debuts a body of photo-based works, sculpture, drawings made from incense smoke and ash, and a series of short films that provide a counter-narrative to the historically westernized discourse of African and African American culture. Throughout the show, which combines expropriated and commodified Aethiopian artifacts and contemporary African American iconography, Erizku maps a constellation of ideas—a new paradigm that transcends master narratives, Eurocentric intellectual gatekeepers, and the monolithic treatment of Africa.
