Dreamsong is pleased to present ndɔmi dɔmi, Stephanie Lindquist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Named for the homophonic MƐnde words for ‘floor’ and ‘story,’ the works in the exhibition depict the daily life of residents and the surrounding environs of Mɔndema, a village in Sierra Leone. Of Liberian ancestry, Lindquist’s recent time spent in West Africa gave her the opportunity to build lasting relationships while learning about and participating in local approaches to farming and cooking. The intersection of agriculture, sustainability, and community is central to the artist’s practice, and she returned from Sierra Leone with soils of varying hues sourced from the grounds of a local mine, preschool, swamp, farm, well and construction site. Using these soils as raw pigments, Lindquist produced a body of work constructed from the very land that feeds and sustains life in Mɔndema.
