Lisson Gallery

'A brush with... Otobong Nkanga' - The Art Newspaper

11 June 2024

For the latest episode of The Art Newspaper's 'A brush with...' podcast, Otobong Nkanga talks to Ben Luke about her influences—from writers to musicians, film-makers and, of course, other artists—and the cultural experiences that have shaped her life and work.

Nkanga explores the land and the environment in relation to our bodies, and the cultures and histories that mould and define them. Working across sculpture, installation, performance, sound, photography and video, the artist brings together what she calls constellations of images, movements and objects, to poetically interweave ideas relating to cultural history and anthropology, geography and geology.

Her first Lisson Gallery solo show, 'We Come from Fire and Return to Fire', continues in London through 3 August.
