Nkanga’s ALTERSCAPE STORIES are sculpted works that were documented by photographs. In them, Nkanga staged herself as creator and destructor, emphasising human influence on the environment. >>

“’Alterscape Stories: Spilling Waste’ refers to man and its environment with regards to ‘Water’. Usable water is imported into the Canary Islands even though it is surrounded by water. At the same time the waters are being polluted by the installation of different kinds of industries which create a certain level of toxicity.” (Otobong Nkanga) >>
