‘SHIFTING TIDES’ – CHURCHILL ONGERE, 14 JUL-19 AUG 2018
‘Shifting Tides’ illustrate the tensions inherent in the modern world as human beings and other entities navigate the politics of power, identity, belonging, alliance, competition, and dominance in an ever-changing global landscape.
In this series of works the artist comments on the changes in the global power-scapes, focusing on the recently witnessed regime changes and retentions in focal countries such as Kenya, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, and the United States of America.
