Nigerian artist Lakin Ogunbanwo speaks on his latest exhibition title ‘We Must Not Be Looking’, which showed at the WHATIFTHEWORLD Gallery in Rosebank. In his works he reflects on the term ‘coloured’ which refers to people of mixed race in South Africa. Using his position as an outsider, unfamiliar with the racialised identities of South African society, Ogunbanwo exploited this naivety in a spontaneous yet ultimately satirical reimagining of race by creating images that are a literal translation of the term Coloured.
