Frida Orupabo, Lying with Objects (2020), Collage with paper pins, 64 x 106cm. IMAGE COURTESY OF STEVENSON GALLERY.

New solo exhibition, I’ve been here for days, by Norwegian-Nigerian artist Frida Orupabo, goes on display at Stevenson Gallery from 19 November 2022 – 28 January 2023. 

Set across three rooms of the gallery, I’ve been here for days features large-scale collages in various dimensions. The sculptures, seen here for the first time and exhibited as an installation are filled with wool and paper as an extension of the artist’s desire to make corporeal images. These ‘pillow collages’, made of panties, bras and soft toys, appear as items from a vanity chest; Orupabo terms them ‘objects closely linked to the body, personal experiences, living encounters and histories’.
