Do You Feel What I Feel: New Works by Eugene Ofori Agyei

EXPERIENCE AS A GHANAIAN LIVING IN THE DIASPORA
Reception and Artist’s Talk on March 13, 5:30pm
Eugene Ofori Agyei (b. 1993) is a Ghanaian-born artist and educator, living in the United States. His most recent body of work Do You Feel What I Feel? explores issues of cultural identity, material ritual, displacement and belonging. Agyei incorporates African batik fabrics, yarn, ceramics, maps and everyday objects imbued with personal or cultural meaning into his installations. These sculptural works help him to define an identity inundated by changing places, languages or perceptions. Agyie considers the dual process of both creating and preserving individual identity beyond the borders we cross, the challenges we face and the story we have not finished telling.
This exhibition is funded in part by the Arts Partnership and the School of Design, Architecture and Art.
