Artist Statement:


    From Navigation to Supersonic Return tells the story of Romana da Conceição, a Brazilian who traveled from Salvador to Lagos on the ship “Aliança” in 1900. When she was 12 years old, joins that of singer Okwei Odili, who in 2015 migrated from Lagos to Salvador. In 1963, Romana had the opportunity to visit Brazil, invited by Brazilian government, interested in establishing commercial relations with the newly independent Nigeria. Her trip was documented by leading newspapers back then. The posters bring excerpts from the documentation of this visit together with an archival of the story of Okwei Odili, made after an interview with the singer, enabling a crossroad of cyclical migration histories.
