SHOWN ABOVE: DETAIL ONE FROM LARGER ARTWORK (SHOWN BELOW)

On November 1 (2014), the leader of the Boko Haram announced in a video that all  the kidnapped schoolgirls had been married off and converted to Islam laughing at any notion of a supposed ceasefire deal.  He said to the parents of the girls, “If you knew what state your daughters were in, it might lead some of you to die from grief...”  This artwork incorporates text art and is setup as a notebook with a ripped out page as a metaphor for these girls being ripped from their homes.
