Frida Orupabo: the mouth and the truth

Opening27 September 2019, 19:00Portikus, Alte Brücke 2 / Maininsel, 60594 Frankfurt am Main

Coinciding with the Guest of Honor Program of Frankfurter Buchmesse 2019, Portikus is very happy to announce the exhibition the mouth and the truth by Frida Orupabo – the artist's first institutional solo exhibition in Germany. Frida Orupabo (b.1986) is a Norwegian-Nigerian artist and sociologist. She lives and works in Oslo, Norway.

Frida Orupabo's practice derived from a collection of media and personal images on Instagram (@nemiepeba) from where she started to make digital collages and short films with her image archive. Her archival imagery, that is potentiated in her surreal collages, draws a picture on the preformed representations of race, gender, sexuality, violence as well as privacy, autobiography and the public in media. For Portikus Frida Orupabo will develop a new site-specific multimedia installation.

Duration: 28.09.–24.11.2019
