dZikudZikui-aBiku-aBiikus is the third edition of my good Friday interventions and performance series. It calls for people of all [forms] and [powers] to reflect on their contribution, action and inaction in/to human violence, discrimination, hate, prejudice, our vulnerabilities and mortality. 
It also sparks the crucifix as a starting point to question the failure and irresponsibility of Christianity in and outside Africa and its contradictory participation in such inhuman acts and human right violations.
The title being borrowed from the Ewe and Yoruba beliefs, suggests a metaphorical relationship between the 'Homo sacer', the vulnerable individuals who seem to be owned by death as the 'abiku' (Yoruba) or the 'dzikudzikui' (Ewe) who will never survive, and the neo-supremacists or purists of our multi-generational society.
