Onyeka Igwe is an artist and researcher working between cinema and installation, born and based in London, UK. Through her work, Onyeka is animated by the question — how do we live together? —with particular interest in the ways the sensorial, spatial and non-canonical ways of knowing can provide answers to this question. She uses embodiment, archives, narration and text to create structural ‘figure-of-eights’, a form that exposes a multiplicity of narratives. Onyeka is part of B.O.S.S., a sound system collective that brings together a community of queer, trans and non-binary people of colour involved in art, sound and radical activism. Together with Rachael Rakes and Laura Huertas Millán, she is also part of a research initiative on alternative and anti ethnographies. Her works have been shown in the UK and internationally at film festivals and galleries, she has upcoming solo shows at Mercer Union (CA) and LUX (UK).
