Born in Lagos in 1994, Aàdesokan Adedayo creates for revelation, to incite change, any form of it on a supraliminal level. He interrogates the mind: his own mind and its endless perceptions having been exposed to various psychoanalytic methodologies by his psychologist father at an early age.
Although his expressions are eclectic, they are centered around the discourse of philosophy, analytical psychology and theology which reflects a dedicated focus on existentialism, social constructionism, mental health and various perceptions concerning them. His works usually stem from ceaseless inquisitions realized through research – whilst leveraging his background education as a Mechanical Engineer – to formulate balanced compositions of art, photography and literature that enshrine all his thoughts and inquiries.
Aàdesokan Adedayo is currently undergoing a research residency at Jan Van Eyck Académie to develop the concept of Waste Identity as an imaginary theorization fixated on the relationship between waste and identity, testing the feasibility of negotiating the use of the identity of waste as a metaphor for displacement and human migration.
