Aṣọ Lànkí, Kí Ató Ki Ènìyàn / ‘We greet dress before we greet its wearer’

LAGOS SPACE PROGRAMME Project 5 collection titled Aṣọ Lànkí, Kí Ató Ki Ènìyàn / ‘We greet dress before we greet its wearer’ deconstructs myths around gender roles and identity by highlighting the masquerade ceremonies of the Gélédé who celebrate the matriarchy and its role in Yoruba society embodied by only men, by collaborating with the London-based artist David Gardner, to design the Gélédé mask. Lagos Space Programme not only contemporaries but highlights an early example of gender-bending within Yoruba society.
