Emeka Ogboh
Artist’s Talk


As part of 1:54’s FORUM programme, Nigerian sound artist Ogboh will be in conversation with Nick Hackworth, discussing aurality and sound as a vehicle for narrating and assembling sonic forms of resistance.

Emeka Ogboh (b. 1977, Enugu, Nigeria) is a pioneer of sound art on the African continent. Ogboh explores how private, public, and collective memories and historiographies are translated, transformed, transcribed, and engraved in sound and sonority. He has been shown in numerous major international exhibitions including the Venice Biennale, 2015, document 14, 2017 and Skulptur Projekte Münster, 2017.
