Watch Nwando Ebizie in conversation with Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock here:
Experience an immersive binaural sound work by Nwando Ebizie, created in response to Hepworth’s works. The Garden of Circular Paths, takes visitors on a sonic art ritual guided journey through the life and work of Barbara Hepworth, featuring composed music and field recordings from places in Yorkshire and Cornwall which have a connection to Hepworth’s life. The installation is designed for headphone listening whilst walking through the Barbara Hepworth: Art & Life exhibition, inviting visitors to experience it through Ebizie’s lens as a Yorkshire-dwelling Afrofuturist.
Todmorden-based multidisciplinary artist Nwando Ebizie(b.1982) creates Afrofuturist speculative fictions and alternate realities at the intersection of live art, experimental music and multi-sensory installations. She proposes new myths, rituals and provocations for radical change and radical transformation of the self and community, drawing from science fiction, Black Atlantic ritual cultures, biophilia, neuroscience, electronic music, and her own neurodiversity and Nigerian heritage.
