Udondian collaborated with local children and adults to produce a large-scale tapestry sculpture, made from locally sourced materials and second-hand clothes. The installation evolved and was activated as residents were invited to contribute items that connect them to their background, cultural lineage, religious affiliations or lived experiences.

Àdápé (a composite of Yoruba words meaning ‘to create’ and ‘perfection’) is a space to forge and celebrate collective identities outside a vociferous narrative of divisive nationalism.
