Kosisochukwu Nnebe in Conversation | Expanded Practice Residency

November 26, 2021

12pm EST

Digital Arts Resource Centre (DARC) is excited to announce this month’s artist in residence at the Knot Project Space, Kosisochukwu Nnebe!

Kosisochukwu Nnebe is a Nigerian-Canadian visual artist. Her practice aims to engage viewers on issues both personal and structural in ways that bring awareness to their own complicity. Her work vacillates between that which is opaque (undecipherable, hidden) and transparent (legible, (hyper)visible) – both literally, in terms of materiality, and metaphorically – as a way of exploring the interplay between interiority and publicness; agency and domination; self and other.

Kosisochukwu Nnebe will be in conversation with DARC’s curator, Amin Alsaden, on November 26 at 12pm EST. Join us and hear Kosisochukwu and Amin discuss the residency, as well as Ndi nna nnanyi na ezuko maka na anyi zukoro / Imaaqai, suvulivut katittut katisimagannuk (The ancestors are meeting because we have met), a video performance piece that features a dialogue between Kosisochukwu Nnebe and Katherine Takpannie, an Inuk artist, in their respective native languages: Igbo and Inuktitut.
