Featured videos

Anita Beckers selection of videos for Independent Collector

In an exclusive interview with IC she talks about the technological progress that keeps reinventing the genre and her different roles she faces as a collector, gallerist and curator.

Artemovendo – in collaboration with Goethe Institut Porto Alegre

The video works shown in Artemovendo present a morphology of ambiguous entities, creatures or technical devices. Natural environments are contrasted with artificial, fully computer-designed worlds. Sometimes it is difficult to distinguish whether we have been invited to take a look at the outside world or into a laboratory; even dimensions appear to be chosen arbitrarily. Or do we happen to be entering a microscopically small universe that has been magnified many times over?

"Ajonjolí y otros moles"
Chance, Observation and a Poetics of the Personal

A series of pieces which deal with chance and observation of the every day; that which in our perception is hidden unless we slow down and take a closer look.

Statement

Karimah Ashadu (b. London 1985) is a British/Nigerian multi-disciplinary Artist. She initially trained as a Painter, before turning to performance and the moving image while undertaking a Masters in Spatial Design.

Ashadu investigates sentiments of movement and narration. Typically, she considers experimental modes of moving image capture aided by hand-crafted mechanisms. These mechanisms probe space, and are fundamental to the introduction of notions like the role of perspective in storytelling. The work also explores the concept of relationships including perceptions of self and place.
A graduate of Chelsea College of Art, London, Ashadu has exhibited internationally including Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; Maison des arts George Pompidou, Cajarc and African Artists’ Foundation, Lagos.

She is the recipient of several awards and grants, including De Ateliers, ARTE Creative, Arts Council England and British Council.

She lives and works between Amsterdam, London and Lagos.
