Your Name Betrays You is an installation that explores the origin of ethnicism and the invention of tradition as a purposely created classification of Africans by missionaries and colonial administrations, in much the same way that a guidebook would be written for birds.
It looks critically at what we call “other tribes” when we are behind closed doors; the root, development and how we have made these descriptions of the “other” a part of our lives.
