Title

Anthony Nsofor

Description

In the past few years, Anthony Nsofor has been researching conflicts arising from land management, urban-rural migration, and population growth in his native Nigeria as well as in other African countries. This interest in how land ownership and land use policies affect ideas of citizenship within ethnically diverse countries inspired his Citizens of Nowhere painting series. During the residency, the artist will expand this line of inquiry by studying governance protocols and management solutions adopted in land-scarce Singapore to accommodate population gorwth and allow for the coexistence of a diversity of ethnic groups. Based on these observations, he will expand Citizens of Nowhere by creating a new body of work influenced by the specificity of Singapore's distinctly vertical landscape and multicultural population. Nsofor also plans to address the pressures of technological development and climate change testing possibilities for collaboration and public participation around key issues such as waste disposal.
