RADIO ART ARCHIVE
Onyeka Igwe is a London born and based moving image artist and researcher. Her work is aimed at the question: "How do we live together?" Not to provide a rigid answer as such, but to pull apart the nuances of mutuality and co-existence in our deeply individualized world. Igwe's practice figures sensorial, spatial, and counter-hegemonic ways of knowing as central to that task. She is interested in the prosaic and everyday aspects of black livingness. For her, the body, archives, and narratives both oral and textual act as a mode of inquiry that makes possible the exposition of overlooked histories. The work comprises untying strands and threads, anchored by a rhythmic editing style, as well as close attention to the dissonance, reflection and amplification that occurs between image and sound.
