Lernziele / Kompetenzen
  • Reading together, reading individually, watching, listening, plotting, and being outside, are some of the methodologies that the week may entail.
InhalteIn this pool seminar a week-long conversation will likely look into concepts and ideas key to Ima-Abasi Okon’s practice, as:
syntax,
language,
knowledge,
edible materials,
flesh,
sound,
fermentation,
spells,
& otherwise
How each of these things can be expressed non figuratively and through the making of an exhibition will be an ongoing question. Student’s individual practices will be explored through this framework.

The workshop will depart from the artist’s current projects.


About the lecturer:

Ima-Abasi Okon is an artist living and working between London and Amsterdam. She works with sculpture, sound, and video. She employs exhibition-making as an exercise in syntax, adopting linguistic and grammatical structures as a way of complicating the construction of knowledge. In her recent works, Okon has repurposed industrial and handmade objects to explore the formation of taste, subjectivity, productivity and excess. Okon has exhibited, among others, at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead; Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo; Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven (all 2022); Tate Britain, London; New Museum Triennial, New York (both 2021); Chisenhale Gallery, London (2019); 13th Dak’Art Biennale, Dakar, Senegal; The Showroom, London (both 2018); and New Art Exchange, Nottingham (2017).
