Home Affairs

Home Affairs are not Talked about on the Public Square: the art of storytelling through living

A NOW Gallery commission celebrating London’s diverse design landscape through cross cultural collaboration. Furniture designer, Yinka Ilori, fashion designer Christine Mhando of Chichia London and creative consultant Arieta Mujay devise theatrical, visually compelling conceptual spaces, brought to life with curated film, archival footage and performance.

Set against a backdrop of indigenous plants, designed objects, and garments, Ilori will create thought-provoking furniture using Mhando’s bespoke Khanga textiles.

Traditional Nigerian & Swahili parables frame four vivid living rooms. Each space will reveal its underlying story, encouraging guests to navigate and explore. The audience is given an opportunity to interact in the space and identify the parables’ messages. Powerful and thought- provoking anecdotes that question local as well as global values and ideologies.

The installation will be further enlivened with illustration and spoken word from Project Tribe, and Lulu Kitololo.
