Following a year characterized with altering realities and discoveries, one of which can be termed man’s interconnectedness, African artist, Aize Paul announces a second solo photography exhibition titled ‘Flares of enthusiasm, dash between’ slated for 29th October – 6th November 2021 in Lagos, Nigeria.
Flares of enthusiasm, the dash between begins as an introspection with the self, and furthers into a journey before birth and how our expectations, dreams, hopes, all become, it conceptualizes capturing life from before till the end.
The exhibition represents the uninhibitedness of your soul prior to birth. Clueless, as you drift fragile in forms of the most liberated versions of yourself you will ever witness; just as you precede your unrequested entry into a life-form. The dashing hopes, dreams, and ideal possibilities of 280 days before you get to be introduced to the dash.
As your story segues into a whole identity embodied in this life-form. the dash between is you, here, right now. Your life – awareness of it, questions from it, expectations of it. Your hopes, dreams, aspirations, youthfulness, definitive moments, saddest moments, life purpose and your innate fear of the inevitable – death.
Having successfully debuted his first solo photography exhibition called “Frozen choices, Sacred Space” in 2020, Aize describes his journey thus far “I shot my first series during the lockdown and it’s been a glide ever since. Although I already experimented with fashion photography but capturing humans for humanity is certainly one of my life purposes, and having art pioneers such as Nicholas Logsdale, Caroline De Beaufort, Katie Barker and few others approve of my works, that definitely brought a different sense of purpose to my journey as a photography artist.”
Highlighting the inspiration for this exhibition and what he aims to achieve, he says; “The pre-show for me is exhibiting means to connect by creating a space solely for a spiritual, Tech and Art experience. I want everyone fortunate to be present at the pre-show to leave with the notion of SELF.”
“The title ‘Flares of Enthusiasm, Dash Between’ was born from a conversation with my mum (foster), who is a poet and we often discuss poetry and literature basically. I must say my first title ‘frozen choices scared space’ was also sourced from her.”
The multi-day exhibition is set to take place in Victoria Island, Lagos with each day having a unique activity ranging from a private viewing, general viewing and a bar pop-up.
