Soirée de lancement - 2021 - FARaway festival des arts à Reims

Emeka Ogboh

Presented by Le FRAC

With his proposal Emeka Ogboh continues his research on the individual and collective implications of political and geopolitical structures, which he translates into sound installations and taste experiences. The artist is here interested in the resonance of political discourses and actions according to the social spaces in which they unfold. Based on the results of a questionnaire circulated in Reims and beyond, the artist composed a beer whose flavour relates the respondents’ relationship to social and political engagement. This gastronomic creation, produced in collaboration with SHED/Senses Brewing, will be accompanied by a musical intervention by the artist, who uses sound to decipher and reformulate the scores of stories to be rewritten.
