Zohra Opoku

Zohra Opoku (b. 1976, Altdöbern, Germany) is a German-Ghanaian multidisciplinary artist living and working in Accra, Ghana. In her practice Opoku combines installation, sculpture, and photography. She re-conceptualizes West African traditions, spirituality, the thread of family lineage as they relate to self-authorship and the politics of her hybrid identity. A globalized social consumption and the commodification of all things African are the driving force in what she sees as the nemesis of her thesis, and the relevance of cultural credentials within this state of being. Opoku’s work has been exhibited at Gallery 1957 Accra, Commune1 Capetown, CCA Lagos, ANO Ghana/ DAK´ART 11th Biennial, Kunsthaus Hamburg, Gallery Peter Herrmann Berlin, Musée de l´Ethnographie Bourdeaux, Guggenheim Bilbao, Broad Art Museum Michigan and 1.54 NY & London. Her latest residencies include Jan van Eyck Institute Maastricht, Kala Institute Berkeley and Institute Sacatar Salvador Da Bahia.
