Presented at Thomasson is a selection of works reflecting Agunbiade-Kolawole’s practice and her attitude toward the medium of photography. The works reflect a span in time and a window to her world of creative outputs in these years. The works are autobiographical, reflecting a series of events – the everyday life – events which are significant. They are metaphors and thus become a language to communicate when no words present themselves.
Diana Agunbiade-Kolawole is an artist who’s work is inspired and expresses the fabric of everyday life. All the works she produces exclusively utilise lens and non lens based photography, these manifests in a variety of outputs such as installations, performances, prints and moving image. She is interested in producing work where the outcome is defined or rather informed by the process itself. With this, she is trying to push the limits of what photography is. She explores the materiality and the different processes to re examine what photography is within this current generation. The approach to the works are with playfulness and humour. The purpose of the work is to speak not shout, not grab attention, but rather to charm, persuade and seduce.
