In the spring of 2017 Otobong Nkanga was featured at Kunsthal Aarhus in Denmark with a 2-part exhibition entitled ‘The Encounter That Took a Part of Me’ curated by Irene Aristizábal and co-produced with Nottingham Contemporary. On show was a new version of the installation and performance piece ‘Taste of a Stone’ from the 2012 Sharjah Biennial, but also a new commission: an installation consisting of a large-scale wall drawing, a diptych tapestry and sculptural display structures. While the exhibition only took up two relatively small show rooms, it is easy to lose yourself in her intriguing work.
