The saying "I am because you are" or "I am because we are and there we are, I am" reflects the philosophy of many African cultures. It expresses the conviction that being part of a network of relationships is part of being human. Things are so intertwined that they resemble a fabric: the vibration of a single thread sets the whole thing in motion.
With looks, salvation or evil can begin. The hungry towel of the Nigerian artist Chidi Kwiburi (* 1966) shows a mirror image of two larger than life and monochrome people in profile. They look at each other and they respectfully touch each other across a border. The arms rest on the shoulder of the other and even accept the "foreign" color. In this giving and receiving, relationship grows.
