About the Artist
Arit Emmanuela Etukudo is a moving image installation artist whose practice deals with the transformation, fluidity and metamorphosis of the Black identity. She creates self-portraits that give the authority over her identity, where she exists without the boundaries of form, time or space. She recreates the interactions between her physical and metaphysical body to create the physical manifestations of the different dimensions created by her life experiences.
