"To fight the neoliberal state is also to erotically and poetically occupy it"
- 'Ten Theses on Touch, or, Writing Touch' by Hypatia Vourloumis
Evan Ifekoya is currently working in film, performance and sound to explore the following questions -
Is every body a political body?
What role can an artistic exploration into archives of experience play in making sense of the present moment?
Ifekoya continues to investigate the 'queerying' of popular imagery. By utilising the props of everyday life the aim is to destroy the aura of preciousness surrounding art. Notions of appropriation, authorship and collaboration permeate the work.
Recent Exhibitions include All Of Us Have A Sense Of Rhythm, David Roberts Art Foundation, London (2015), Embodied Spaces, FramerFramed, De Tolhuistuin, Amsterdam (2015) both curated by Christine Eyene, Studio Voltaire OPEN, London (2015) and 30 years of the Future, Castlefield Gallery, Manchester (2014). Recent performances have taken place at David Roberts Art Foundation and Tate Modern, London as well as The Marlborough, Brighton and De Tolhuistuin, Amsterdam (all 2015).
