Evan Ifekoya is part of citywide exhibition 'Prospect.4: The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp', November 18th 2017 - February 25th 2018, New Orleans

 

"Prospect.4, the fourth iteration of a citywide exhibition, finds inspiration in the lotus plant. This aquatic perennial takes root in the fetid but nutrient-rich mud of swamps so that its beautiful flower may rise above the murky water. The flower’s grace is inextricably connected to the noisome swamp, just as redemption exists in ruin and creativity in destruction. Viewed as a symbol of spiritual enlightenment in Buddhism and Hinduism, the lotus suggests the possibility of overcoming arduous challenges. It reminds us that, from the depths of difficulty and desolation, art brings the invisible to light."
