Dancing Hearts, Hidden Tears (2010)

Dancing Heart, Hidden Tears

Wallpaper installation

Dancing Hearts, Hidden Tears is a wallpaper consisting of approximately 1000 Nollywood film titles. Highly emotive, mischevious, exuberant and sometimes crass, these titles demonstrate Nollywood’s ability to market their films and draw buyers in. By placing these titles together on a wall they discharge an energy. The wall becomes an emotional and psychological canvas, a memorial wall and even a meditative tool. And one that tells us something of the Nigerian psyche and the layers of pain, desperation and ambition embedded within.
