More About Emeka Ogboh

Emeka Ogboh (b. 1977, Enugu, Nigeria) is a pioneer of sound art on the African continent. Through his audio installations Ogboh explores how private, public, and collective memories and histories are translated, transformed and encoded into sound and sonority. The work contemplates how sound captures existential relationships, frames our understanding of the world, and provides a context in which to ask critical questions around immigration, globalization and post colonialism.

Ogboh has participated in numerous international exhibitions including the 56th edition of La Biennale di Venezia, Italy (2015); documenta 14, (2017), Athens and Kassel,and Skulptur Projekte Münster, 2017.
