Ayo Akingbade has created a limited edition print exclusively for the Whitworth to accompany her exhibition Show Me The World Mister, 3 May – 20 October 2024.

PRE-ORDER ONLY: This print will be despatched before the end of May 2024.

Head of Idoani Girl, 2024, is a linear portrait of a fictional girl, inspired by Akingbade’s most recent film Faluyi, shot in Ondo State in Nigeria. Originally created as a risograph, the image has been subsequently enlarged and digitally printed to the scale of a poster. The deep blue tone of the print is inspired by the indigo-dyed adire textile prominent in Yoruba culture, and the title of the exhibition is written along the paper’s border like a fabric’s selvedge. The edition was made during the artist’s residency at the Jan Van Eyck Academie in 2024. Each edition is signed and numbered by the artist.

  • 55.43 cm x 42 cm.
  • Edition of 20 (10 artist’s proofs). 
  • Hand numbered and signed by the artist.
  • Digital print of an original risograph.
  • Printed on 300gsm paper.
