Through this work, Uche Okpa-Iroha tests a collaborative method while reflecting on the artist’s existence in the midst of society. This means revealing his private life in the midst of a social existence, which also has within it elements of artistic life. In reflecting his social and personal existence, he involves several people, including members of his own family, as his collaborators. While testing his methods for artistic collaboration, he uses various mediums, beginning with photography, drawing and video. For Okpa-Iroha, the process of discussion, negotiation or even the arguments involved in collaboration are a vehicle that can be used to evaluate collaborative methods and questioning our identity.
