Otobong Nkanga, <em>Bruises and Lustre</em>, 2015, performance, 9'38
Otobong Nkanga and Emeka Ogboh, Sharjah Biennial 14: Leaving the Echo Chamber, Sharjah, 2019
Sobre

Otobong Nkanga estuda as mudanças sociais e topográficas do ambiente ao seu redor. Ao explorar a noção de terra como um lugar de não pertencimento, Nkanga fornece um significado alternativo aos conceitos sociais de identidade; Paradoxalmente, ela traz à luz as memórias e os impactos históricos provocados pelos seres humanos e pela natureza. A pesquisa da artista une todos os vários componentes que formam o nosso ambiente, observando as inerentes complexidades de recursos como o solo, a terra e seus potenciais valores, a fim de provocar narrativas e histórias sobre esse lugar. 

Como uma antropóloga - traçando os meios violentos pelos quais minerais e objetos apresentados são exumados de seus ambientes naturais - Nkanga coloca os vários acontecimentos no processo de colonização em um contexto contemporâneo. Ao fazer isso, a artista recria nossa relação com o ambiente cotidiano e levanta questões sobre a estrutura histórica de um lugar, tanto física quanto metafisica.

Otobong Nkanga (Kano, Nigeria, 1974) vive e trabalha na Antuérpia.
Suas exposições individuais mais recentes incluem A Lapse, a Stain, a Fall, ar/ge kunst, Bolzano (2018); To Dig a Hole that Collapses Again, MCA Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2018); Wetin You Go Do?, The Tanks at Tate Modern, Blavatnik Building, Londres (2017); The Encounter That Took a Part of Me, Kunsthal Aarhus, Aarhus (2017); The Encounter That Took a Part of Me, Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham (2016); Diaoptasia, Tate Modern, Londres (2015); Comot Your Eyes Make I Borrow You Mine, Kadist Art Foundation FR, Paris (2015); Crumbling Through Powdery Air, Portikus, Frankfurt (2015).
