Emeka Ogboh

Artist

Emeka Ogboh connects to places with his senses of hearing and taste through his audio.

Through his audio installations and gastronomic works, Ogboh explores how private, public, collective memories and histories are translated, transformed and encoded into sound and food. These works contemplate how sound and food capture existential relationships, frame our understanding of the world and provide a context in which to ask critical questions on immigration, globalisation, and post-colonialism.

Emeka Ogboh has participated in numerous international exhibitions including the 56th edition of La Biennale di Venzeia , Italiy (2015); documenta 14 (2017), Athens and Kassel, and Skulptur Projekte Münster (2017). Emeka Ogboh is also co-founder of the Video Art Network Lagos, and in 2016 Ogboh was awarded Prize of the Bottcherstra ße in Bremen.
