“I Knew you Before I was Born” by Kambui Olujimi
Medium: Wood, Brass, Glass Walking Cane, Canes, Foot Stool, and Faux Pearls
If there is one thing I can relate to about this art is the feeling of being homesick while at home. Just because you are at a place called home, it doesn’t mean you’re in a place where you feel comfortable. This piece was something I was drawn to the moment I saw it. One think that made me feel different about this piece was that I felt it was more about disassociation. I got this feeling from viewing the large doors off the ground and slightly parted with the pearls draped down, almost as if it were floating.
