A House in A House

is about solidarity and resilience shared across a pan-African landscape.

is a response to the immediate violence of housing demolitions both in Zimbabwe in 2005 and Lagos Island in 2019.

is the painful process of picking up the pieces of these broken homes and relocating elsewhere, often with no place to go.

is a protest against endemic corruption that leads to infrastructural lack.

is the sound of keke maruwa’s croaking through streets, bravely going where they shouldn’t; perhaps suffering from a chronic lack of belief in the value of human life.

is everything special where special shouldn’t exist.

is begrudged trust within a system that has brewed mistrust.

is a mother’s warmth in unfamiliar times.

is the strength of a space with people making beauty in it.
