Zohra Opoku

Lives and Works:
Accra
Disciplines:
Installation, Photography, Sculpture

Zohra Opoku is a German/Ghanaian multidisciplinary artist living and working in Accra.

With a keen and disciplined eye for textile and design, Opoku employees installation, sculpture and photography at the helm of her practice. She conceptualizes West African traditions, spirituality, the thread of family lineage as they relate to self authorship and the politics of her hybrid identity. A globalized social consumption and the commodification of all things African are a driving force in what she sees as the nemesis of her thesis, and the relevance of cultural credentials within this state of being.

Opoku has exhibited her work in association with Gallery 1957 Accra, Gallery Commune1 Capetown, CCA Lagos, Nubuke Foundation Accra, Kunsthaus Hamburg, Gallery Peter Herrmann Berlin, Musée de l ́Ethnographie Bourdeaux, Guggenheim Bilbao, Broad Art Museum Michigan and Spelman Museum Atlanta. Her recent residencies include Jan van Eyck Institute Maastricht/NL, Kala Institute Berkeley/CA and Institute Sacatar Salvador da Bahia/BR.

Opoku is represented by Mariane Ibrahim Gallery Seattle.
