Otobong Nkanga

There’s No Such Thing as Solid Ground

Otobong Nkanga’s interest lies in the complex relationship between humans and land. In her works, she explores this relationship within the tension between exploitative extraction processes and structures of care and repair. Following her one-year stay as In House: Artist in Residence 2019 at the Gropius Bau, a solo exhibition will offer insights into the central issues of her work.
