Evan Ifekoya (b. 1988, Iperu, Nigeria) lives and works in London, UK. Ifekoya’s practice begins by asking what it would mean to start from a place of abundance, rather than scarcity. Their recent moving image and audio works explore a cosmology of healing through sound, stillness and the creation of intentional space. They established the collectively run Black Obsidian Sound System (B.O.S.S.) in 2018 and currently lecture on the Fine Art and History of Art course at Goldsmiths University of London, UK. Recent exhibitions and presentations include 180 The Strand, UK (2019); De Appel,Netherlands (2019); KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Germany (2017); and Serpentine Galleries, UK (2016).
