Emeka Ogboh by Ricardo June 18, 2019 0 Portfolios

Emeka Ogboh connects to places with his senses of hearing and taste. 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, globalization, and post-colonialism.
Ogboh has participated in numerous exhibitions including documenta 14, (2017), Athens and Kassel, Skulptur Projekte Münster (2017), the 56th edition of La Biennale di Venezia, Italy (2015), and Dakar Biennale (2014). Ogboh was awarded Prize the Sharjah Biennial 14 prize with Otobong Nkanga, and in 2018 was shortlisted for the Hugo Boss Prize.
