Nni Bu Ogwu
Nni Bu Ogwu is an immersive, multidisciplinary research archive and teaching tool designed to educate and encourage conversation around pre and post-colonial Igbo diets.
It seeks to interrogate how Igbo Nigerians have used art to exchange food information whilst simultaneously investigating how art can be used as an accessible tool for educational enrichment. Nni Bu Ogwu which will also launch a multi-sited physical manifestation during London’s Frieze Week, is the result of a pilot three-month research residency awarded through Guest Projects Digital.
The project has been developed in partnership with Yinka Shonibare Foundation, Guest Projects Digital, University of the Arts London, The Research Centre for Transnational Art, Identity and Nation (TrAIN) and its Director, Professor Paul Goodwin. It is generously supported by the Genesis Foundation.
