Chioma Ebinama’s multidisciplinary studio practice ranges from works on paper to soft sculpture. She is interested in understanding the role of the African artist in negotiating the representations of the black female body in Western culture. Moreover, her work explores how visual narrative and crafts create space for the fractured sense of identity inherent to those whose histories have been obscured by American and European hegemony over African history.
Ebinama received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2016. Notable exhibitions include Anunu: Notes on the Divine Feminine, Boys’ Quarters Project Space, Port Harcourt (2019); In a Silent Way, Dak’Art – Biennale de l’Art Africain Contemporain off-site, Dakar (2018) and Gods of the Wilderness, Catinca Tabacaru Gallery, New York (2018). Upcoming residencies include M. Bassy A.I.R, Hamburg and pocoapoco A.I.R, Oaxaca.
