Future frontiers. Gabonese artist Owanto has kept the specific location of her unidentified dirt road conspicuously and purposefully absent. It could be Senegal, Burkina Faso—or Nevada. Rather than focusing on what has been done to the land, she invites us to ponder what we can do for it. Hers is a landscape where choices can still be made.
