Plantation (Ayomide Tejuoso) is a Nigerian photographer, video artist, and performance artist based in Nantes, France. Her work is centered around how to create and maintain methodologies focused on developing vulnerable and invasive imagery. These methodologies include rituals and trances that allow the most violent and absurd of her thoughts to be turned into visual pieces; in these pieces she is often the main subject, communicating through her body, her surroundings, the layers of black experience, spirituality, and suffering

In 2019, she was a finalist in the Lagos Photo Festival Portfolio Review Award. Plantation was selected for Foam Talent 2021, and was published in the fifteenth edition of Foam Magazine Talent. She has also participated in group shows such as Making Faces, Rele Gallery Lagos, (2021).In November 2021, her project “Black Sex Is Forbidden; Black Death Is Permitted” showed in the “Reframing History” Vogue Photo Festival, Milan.
