<strong>The</strong> <strong>Way</strong> <strong>The</strong>y <strong>See</strong> Us is a fictional work based on society. Drawing traditional references from the<br />

Urohbo people in Delta state, Nigeria, where Jacqueline is from.<br />

It is centered around three (3) Kingdoms;<br />

Jite Kingdom (Faceless people who are also known as “<strong>The</strong> Clairvoyants”),<br />

Rukeme Kingdom (Blind people also know as “<strong>The</strong> Orators”) and<br />

Ese Kingdom (Mouthless people known as “<strong>The</strong> <strong>See</strong>rs”).<br />

<strong>The</strong>se kingdoms are separated from one another by vast evil forests and are unaware of each other’s existence.<br />

<strong>The</strong> protagonists of the story are three (3) brave people; Kome, Efemana & Okpako Jr - risking their lives and everything<br />

they know to go out of their Kingdoms in search of cure to the different plagues that have befallen their people.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Way</strong> <strong>The</strong>y <strong>See</strong> Us is a story of love, fear, curiosity, acceptance and unity in the face of tragedy.<br />

It helps us understand how one story can have several meanings to people because of their different<br />

points of view, which have been influenced by their history and experiences.<br />

By exploring and embracing their differences, the three (3) Kingdoms are able to help one another proffer lasting<br />

solutions to the long standing problems and plagues they experience and restore normalcy to the lives of their people.<br />

Drawing from the cross pollination of cultures, <strong>The</strong> <strong>Way</strong> <strong>The</strong>y <strong>See</strong> Us exposes the reactions and<br />

experiences of an outsider. Exploring the perceptions of difference and acceptance from an outsiders perspective.<br />

<strong>The</strong> exhibition seeks to answer the why’s of rejection and prejudice, proffering simple solutions to complex ideologies.
