In the latest in our series of Hearing From Artist interviews, Helen Welford, Assistant Curator is in conversation with Otobong Nkanga.

Otobong works with textiles, drawing, photography, installation, video and performance to examine the relationships between people and land through our consumption of natural resources. Nkanga was born in Nigeria and is based in Belgium. Her solo exhibition ‘From Where I Stand’ launched at MIMA in March 2020. The show was initiated by Tate St Ives and reimagined for MIMA.
