The Capillarité is Temitayo Ogunbiyi’s first solo exhibition in Paris at 31 Project.

The project engages the mixture of unexpected forms realised from fusions of elements of Nigerian hairstyles with geometric lines and botanical elements inspired by natural history. It alludes to a plural culture and the artist’s diasporic heritage.

Comprised mostly of drawings on paper, Ogunbiyi adopts the aesthetics of naturalist drawings from the 18th and 19th centuries to reference the colonial classification system of the living world. Ethnological and botanical references in the intimate drawings attempt a fragile balance between personal history and the movements of universal history.

The term capillarity is a nod to the use of hairstyle movements in the works, and importantly, the symbolic evocation of the mixture of cultures made possible by contact, impact, propagation, and assimilation.
