Damien Ajavon is exhibiting their textile work in the exhibition "the excess is ritual" at Dunlop Art Gallery, Central Library from January 21- April 4, 2023.
Based in Oslo, Norway, Damien Ajavon is a queer non-binary textile artist, born in France, of Senegalese and Togolese origin. They use textiles as a language for storytelling that weave together elements of their ancestry. Ajavon employs African and Western influences as important visual markers in their work that also seeks to connect their identity of Blackness and queerness to their notions of home, origin, and spirit. They have been exhibited in several group exhibitions and has been invited to residencies in North America, Europe, and Africa. Their work was recently included in the Oslo Commune public collection.
