TIME OUT

This series is psychotherapy visual representation of the meaning of being (life) and existence. My leniency qualities developed over time had been lent to my sibling right from my childhood.  Being the first child of my mother, seventh of my father – in a complicated socio-cultural matrix of my upbringing, my options were limited. It’s been a battle to overcome challenges in a quest for surviving challenges for survival, both personal and for the larger family structure.  

Locked within myself for months, searching for the “way”, I found glimpse of a “way out” in my name: Aderemilekun – “he has come to SOOTHE my SORROW.” Not consoling to realize that my existence has been molded to support others, but it’s a “time-out” – a ventilation of melancholic state.

In my maternal Uncle’s trajectory, I found common realities and his images served as motif for me to relieve myself from the deadly world of depression.
