About the work

My practice includes drawing, painting and performance art. The drawings are most often comprised of hand-stitching on tracing paper–here, the collaged faces. Over the years, I have been deeply interested in the Atlantic ocean as a site of history, memory, landscape.

Career Highlights

Wura-Natasha Ogunji’s works are in the collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, The Baltimore Museum of Art, Smithsonian National Museum of African Art, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, among others.

Recent exhibitions include ‘lalala ha!’ at Tiwani Contemporary, Lagos (2023) and ‘A World in Common: Contemporary African Photography’ at Tate Modern (2024).

Ogunji is a recipient of the Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship and has received grants from The Pollock-Krasner Foundation; The Dallas Museum of Art; and the Idea Fund. She resides in Lagos where she is founder of the experimental art space The Treehouse.

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm (BST) Monday 3rd July, however, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

£500 increments for bids of £5,000 plus

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
