Designed as part of the exhibition "The City, Faraway", Eko’polis is a novel proposition from the Nigerian artist Emeka Ogboh, who combines his favourite material— sound—with a series of models of towers designed by visionary architects coming from the collection of the FRAC Centre. This juxtaposition invites us to make a sensory plunge into a hybrid urban environment. Ogboh has worked with various sounds captured in different cities around the world, mixed with those of Lagos, also known as Eko. This acoustic dovetailing evokes the frenzied growth of the Nigerian capital, a megalopolis of 20 million inhabitants which is now adopting Western models of development and growth. The intermingled layers of sound evoke the complex urban identity which is the result, somewhere between tradition and innovation. In so doing, the installation ushers in a sensitive line of thinking about the future, utopia, and invention.
