The Nigerian artist Eke Bright Ugochukwu works primarily with second-hand materials. His richly metaphorical installations are inspired above all by his homeland that is burdened by ecological issues. Inspired by a skin infection caused by acid rain, Eke developed an installation called “Acid Rain” for the 2006 Dakar Biennale of Contemporary African Art in Senegal. It is composed of a large number of small plastic bags filled with acidified water, which cumulatively have the appearance of a large toxic cloud floating in the space. The Ursula Blickle Foundation presents for the first time in Germany the vast “Cloud-Earth Twist” installation (a further development of “Acid Rain”) installation by the artist born in 1976 in Mbaise (Imo State).
