Dreamsong presents Stephanie Lindquist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, ndɔmi dɔmi.

Named for the homophonic MƐende words for ‘floor’ and ‘story,’ the exhibition’s paintings depict the daily life of residents in Mɔndema, a village in Sierra Leone. Of Liberian ancestry, Lindquist’s time in West Africa allowed her to learn about and participate in local approaches to farming and cooking. The relationship between agriculture, sustainability, and community is central to Lindquist's practice, and she returned from Sierra Leone with local soils of varying hues sourced from the grounds a local mine, preschool, swamp, farm, well and construction site. Using these soils as raw pigments, the artist produced a body of work constructed from the very land that feeds and sustains Mɔndemanese life.
