Emeka Ogboh connects to places with his senses of hearing and taste. His audio installations contemplate how sound captures existential relationships, frames our understanding of the world, and provide a context to ask critical questions around immigration, globalization and post colonialism, among other subject matters.
Ogboh has focused detailed attention on the megalopolis, Lagos, the commercial and cultural hub of Nigeria, in his exploration of the history and aural properties of cities through field recordings. This interaction led to producing an expansive body of work entitled “Lagos Soundscapes,” which he has installed in different spaces and contexts.
A co-founder of the Video Art Network Lagos, he is a recipient of several awards and grants including, the DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst) fellowship in 2014 and the Böttcherstraße Prize in Bremen in 2016.
