Werdegang / Ausbildung:
SHEILA CHUKWULOZIE is a multimedia artist who believes the nature of Being|Body is always fragmented, remixed and therefore digital. By juxtaposing local rituals, modern technology, traditional myths, and movement styles, her practice battles the politics of “behaving oneself” in a Catholic-colonial body. Her work has been included in exhibitions at the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris, the Delfina Foundation in London, and in art spaces and festivals across three continents. From 2017-2018, she travelled as a Thomas J Watson fellow studying with traditional mask makers and cloth weavers in eight African countries. Her installation “Thanks Xenophobia” was widely reviewed, including in Frieze, the Financial Times, and Artnet. Her latest film “Egungun” (directed by Olive Nwosu) was presented by Sundance, the British Film Institute, TIFF International film festival, and Aspen film festival.
