Biography

 

Born 1989, Robert Selinam Kofiga Gbemu is a Ghanaian self taught multimedia artist. Sel Kofiga as he is affectionately known resides and works in Accra.

.I am interested in many. I am a self taught multimedia artist whose practice revolves around issues of identity politics, place of belonging, space, place and objects through an interesting intersection of performance, photography, abstract expressionism and installation art. Working at the intersection of movement and imagery my work opens up questions about political hybridity of being. I aim to highlight the various meanings the body in space can encapsulate as an expressive access-point to the world, constitutive of our subjectivity to place and its interconnectedness with objects and things. For the past five years I have been using my practice to engage with the transitional nature of embodiment while exploring and finding meaning in many other things.

I love black cats, the ocean and the forest
