Interactive Projects

2019      2018      2017      2016

With the intention of engaging the full spectrum of attendees at ART X Lagos, each year the Interactive Projects invite guests to experience new ways of artistic expression. For the 2019 Interactive Projects, A Whitespace Creative Agency, the curator, explores the theme of PLAY.  The Interactive Projects will be presented by 7UP.

Play as Collective

In Play as Collective, the juxtaposition of the analogue world and our desired digital future is interrogated. Developed from a collaboration between Nifemi Marcus-Bello, Desiree Craig and Deborah Segun, the project explores the act of wishing through the lens of nostalgia and aspiration. Creating a virtual wishing installation, the artists hope to simulate the act of making a wish, allowing participants to experience a sense of idealistic hope.

Play as Creation

In Play as Creation, we create an interactive textile installation resulting from a collaboration between artist Yadichinma Ukoha-Kalu and fashion designer Bubu Ogisi. It explores the idea of print, pattern and form-making, and reveals how these yield the everyday materials and textiles that adorn our bodies. Incorporating methods such as wax printing, silk printing and indigo dyeing, the project merges traditional Nigerian textile manufacturing practices with modern forms of expression. The audience is invited to interact with the textiles through an immersive installation that allows them to participate in the production process by designing wearable items of their own.
