Set at Ussher Fort, an abandoned slave trading post in Accra, Ghana, this series, ironically titled TABOO, depicts a young man occupying space in a place where that freedom was once forbidden. It is a momentary reflection of today's reality, framed within the colonial structures that preceded it - a meandering between the past and present. Similarly, the protagonist (Holali) meanders between light and shadow, using the movement of his body as a statement of agency.
