‘Other World’ by Odili Donald Odita

May 24, 2018

Odili Donald Odita’s solo exhibition entitled Other World, opened this week at Stevenson Gallery in Cape Town. The show will be on until the 30th of June. In the words of the artist: “There is the understanding that ‘otherness’ defines a socially constructed space existing outside of the normal, forcibly and otherwise. I had imagined myself also speaking from this place, but I realize that I am also directly affected by all things that happen in the mainstream world, whether I like it, or not. We are not living in separate worlds. The ‘other world’ is this world. There is no separation from this and that. The only separation that exists is the one that we create in our minds.”
