Ndidi Dike, In the guise of resource control

by Virginie Bobin
Summary

Nigerian artist Ndidi Dike has been working on the “resource curse” for several years. This is the scourge that hits countries rich in resources (mining, oil, forestry), resources that are so coveted they cause destruction, despoliation, corruption and conflict. Her subtle work focuses on specific materials (latex, leather, rattan or coltan), their circulation and impact.
