Ruth Sutoyé 20 July – 31 August 2020

Lineage is an ongoing photo series in which Ruth Sutoyé documents her family and explores her Ijaw and Yoruba heritage, both here in the UK and Nigeria. Aburo is the genesis of the series, capturing two of her brothers at her mother’s home in Ashford, Kent.

Ort Gallery was due to open an exhibition by Sutoyé in May which has now been postponed to September 2020 (more info soon). Thanks to Arts Council Emergency Funding we were able to support Sutoyé to work on this photo series during lockdown.
