Tate Modern's playful African museum

One of the world's leading contemporary art galleries, London's Tate Modern, is showing a huge installation that it recently acquired from Beninese artist Meschac Gaba.

The work, entitled Museum of Contemporary African Art , questions the nature of a museum and Western perceptions of African art.

BBC Africa's Sophie Ikenye joined Tate Modern curator Kerryn Greenberg for a tour of the show.
