About

Evan Ifekoya is an interdisciplinary artist, exploring the politicisation of culture, society and aesthetics. Appropriated material from historical archives and contemporary society make up the work. By ‘queerying’ popular imagery and utilising the props of everyday life, the aim is to destroy the aura of preciousness surrounding art. Central to this practice is an exploration into the ways that collaboration might take place.

With a critical approach to technology, aspects of how it mediates our lives permeate throughout the work. Performance is approached with the same sensibility by including elements of how we express ourselves digitally today. Social media and mobile technology act as co- performers in the live event.

Recent performances have taken place at ngbk, Berlin, Theatre in the Mill Bradford, Ovalhouse Theatre and Rich Mix, London, as well as The Marlborough, Brighton. Video works have been screened at BFI, London College of Communication and
Richmix, London as well as Badbroke project space, Stroud. Evan works collaboratively as part of Collective Creativity: Critical reflections into QTIPOC creative practice.
