QUINTESSENCE WELCOMES “SILENT VOICES” – A MIXED MEDIA EXHIBITION BY CHAMBERLAIN UKENEDO
Quintessence,Lagos is delighted to show the new works of Chamberlain Ukenedo starting from Saturday 8th April 2017 at the Quintessence Gallery and Store in Ikoyi,Lagos.
According to Business Dictionary, non-verbal communication “includes pitch, speed, tone, and volume of voice, gestures and facial expressions, body postures, stance and proximity to the listener, eye movements and contact and dress and appearance” In infant, non-verbal communication is learned from social-emotional communication, making the face rather than the voice dominant.
Furthermore, a substantial portion of the human communication is non-verbal and every day, husbands respond to several non-verbal cues and behaviors. It is indeed two third of communication.
In pursuance of this, Chamberlain, through his exhibition, explores non-verbal communication, which he has titled SILENT VOICES.
This is, however, quite a challenging but interesting area of approach since elements of speech transmit various meanings.
Chamberlain captures some of our postures, facial expression, eye gazes and gestures in his novel exhibition. The interesting thing about his body of works is that each time you look at them, your interpretation of the characters change. You never get tired of having these works in your homes or work places. He uses serene and happy colors to affect our emotions and moods positively.
Chamberlain also tries to speak for the disenfranchised and marginalized in the society in a refreshing way. Our newly acquired culture in this information age, no doubt places an important role in our non-verbal-communication. It influences our activities and interpersonal interactions.
The exhibition promises to enthrall every art enthusiasts and curators who hope to deeply study the intricacies of the human communication mechanisms.
Quintessence welcomes Chamberlain to its gallery after a long leave of absence from the art scene, since his sojourn in the advertising world.
Silent Voices is a new age exhibition and a delight for art lovers, critics and collectors. It is a must-see.
The gallery will be open for this exhibition from 8th of April 2017, for three weeks.
