Ofoeme’s multi-disciplinary practice uses audio, visual and performative means to interrogate notions of identity, race and perception, hoping to raise awareness and spark discussion around these themes. Works exhibited will encompass a variety of media along with videowork.
Kamile Ofoeme’s multi-disciplinary practice uses visual, audio and performative means to interrogate notions of perception, race and identity. In his most recent works, which employ video, photography, digital abstraction and print, Ofoeme is exploring the idea of racial hybridity through instinctively choreographed and rhythmic hand gestures.
Ofoeme lives in London and has just graduated from the BA Fine Art and History of Art course at Goldsmiths University.
Across Devonshire Collectives spaces will be a programme of performances, talks and an exhibition that look at identity, race and our relationship to the digital, investigating the possibilities offered by Afro-futurism, cybernetics, virtuality and the ideas of the trans and post-human. The programme will incorporate contemporary music making, video games and graphic novel making.
