Evan Ifekoya


Evan Ifekoya is an interdisciplinary artist working with text, sound and video.

Evan’s current work investigates the possibility of an erotic and poetic occupation using film, performative writing and sound, focused on co-authored, intimate forms of knowledge production and the radical potential of spectacle.

For their talk, Evan Ifekoya played us a video and sound piece that they were currently working on – notes I took from it are below:

    • What it means to listen and decenter the visual
    • Sound piece, essay: Monologue, political piece, public speeches – heavy beat music
    • Accompanying visuals – sea life, rhythmic music
    • Lifeforms – interest in the Octopus
    • Pulling away from having the self as a body in their work
    • Fragments of works and performances + research
    • Electronic/tech music + song and form and structure
    • Silence to get back in the body, where silence is just as important as sound
    • Initially only sound and then visuals with sound. Dialogue with sound and visuals at one point
    • Thought provoking, intense, immersive – booming beats
    • Sound across 5 channels normally
