"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
"My connection to tradition was sort of limited. I started to investigate what that would actually mean for me, for a contemporary, modern African. How could one be authentic? I started to look at the representation of the ideas of African art and at what things represented Africa. I came upon the fabrics."
