Is this Space Ours Now?

In partnership with Gallery 44, we are proud to present TABOO, a photography series by photographer Delali Cofie!

Through TABOO Delali aims to explore the idea of land reclamation and freedom. TABOO is set Ussher Fort, an abandoned slave trading post in Accra, Ghana, and depicts a young man ( the protagonist, Holali, illustrated above) occupying space in a place where freedom was once forbidden.

Through this photos, Delali examines land reclamation as a momentary reflection of today’s reality, framed within the colonial structures that preceded it– a meandering between the past and present. Delali depicts Holali meandering between light and show, using the movement of his body as a statement of agency.


TABOO will be on display at Gallery 44401 Richmond St. W, Suite 120, Toronto, ON, vitrines until December 31st 2021.
