‘Incidents at the Two Two Hotel: The Porter’ a performance installation by Wura-Natasha Ogunji: large scale drawings of a future world where inhabitants live in a hotel called the Two Two that consists of two sky-high towers built on an artificial, floating island, the plastic detritus of centuries.  Movement in this landless future is most strongly determined by language proficiency.  This makes knowledge of Shadowlandic—a hybrid form that borrows from many languages—extremely powerful. 

Wura-Natasha Ogunji is a visual and performance artist.  She creates visual narratives with thread, stitching drawings into translucent sheets of architectural sketch and hand-painted paper.  In her performances she uses bundles of threads, measured in fathoms, as she explores connections to body, land and power.
