2020

About the Item

The artwork titled "Kuluso (Ant-Lion Larvae)" is a captivating piece that portrays a man standing beside a woman carrying a child who is breastfeeding. The artwork was created by Nigerian artist Adegbenro Adeola. The artwork features a man and a woman, both dressed in traditional clothing. The woman is holding a child who is suckling on her breast, while the man stands beside her, his gaze fixed in distance. The title of the artwork, "Kuluso (Ant-Lion Larvae)," is derived from the Yoruba language. The ant-lion larvae, or kuluso in Yoruba, is a small insect that is found in the region and is known for its tenacity and resilience. The title is significant in that it speaks to the strength and resilience of the people of Nigeria, who have endured many challenges and hardships throughout their history. The artwork is a powerful representation of the bond between a mother and child, and the role of the father in supporting and protecting his family. The woman's nudity and the child's breastfeeding symbolize the natural, life-giving aspect of motherhood, while the man's presence suggests the importance of male support in the nurturing of children. Furthermore, the artwork also speaks to issues of cultural identity and the legacy of colonialism in Nigeria. The use of traditional clothing reflects Adegbenro Adeola's desire to celebrate and preserve Nigerian cultural heritage. This is particularly significant in a country that has experienced a long history of colonization and cultural erasure. In conclusion, "Kuluso (Ant-Lion Larvae)" is a beautiful and thought-provoking artwork that speaks to issues of family, cultural identity, and resilience. Adegbenro Adeola's use of color, form, and symbolism creates a powerful representation of the human form that is both visually striking and emotionally resonant. The artwork serves as a reminder of the importance of preserving cultural heritage and the role of the family unit in sustaining and nurturing society.
