Aderemi’s current focus questions individual realities and truth(s) that stretch across the societal fabric as constants for an elastic socio-system. He is interested in how past experiences (agonies, joys, businesses, travels and religious beliefs) of being part of a family reshape the individual’s present conditions, and serve as catalysts for “the”surrealistic future. The psychological effect of the idea “one for all, all for one,” is at the centre of his new interventions. In “Al Ikhlas: The Purity / The Refining”. Adegbite discusses macro issues, he explores them through the smaller narrations that surround us. These narrations can be found in living rooms, or even in our beds. He explores them by using family photo archives, and believes that macro political problems can be felt and captured in personal stories.
