Ojuelegba is a new multisensory installation from renowned Nigerian artist Emeka Ogboh. Inspired by the district Ojuelegba in the heart of Lagos, Nigeria, Ogboh’s installation envisions an immersive experience where sight and sound entwine. Visual elements drawn from random selections of Ojuelegba’s environment synchronize with the rhythmic cadences of Ogboh’s album 6°30′33.372″N 3°22′0.66″E, an auditory portrait woven from the fabric of daily life in the district. The result is an ever-changing and dynamic installation wherein each interaction is a unique experience, resonating with the ever-evolving nature of Ojuelegba itself.
Ojuelegba is part of Sonic Worlds, a year of programming exploring diverse sound, musical, and listening practices as they figure in our everyday lives and in various fields of study. Support for the exhibition has been provided by The John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities and Haverford College’s CRAFT initiative.
