flat 70 Culture Club presents a tour of the ongoing exhibition Perceive sea, dunes, mountains in move, followed by a screening of After We’re Gone by Ima Iduozee on Sunday 25 November at 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning in London.
Culture Club was established in 2021 by flat70 founders Anthony and Senam Badu. Culture Club is a rolling programme that spotlights artists, curators and other cultural workers from the global ethnic majority, without whom, London’s arts and cultural scene would be poorer. Through group tours and tailored engagement opportunities, Culture Club offers inclusive activities for good mental health, relationship building, self-expression, and joy in the art that’s for us and by us. Please visit flat 70’s website for more info.
After We’re Gone by Ima Iduozee uses the narrative conventions of documentary and fiction. The now, the past and the future are rethought to create an ode to those who have paved the way. The film is the second part of Diaspora Mixtapes, a series or works that celebrates the past, present and future of the African Diaspora. Ima Iduozee (b. 1988) is a Finnish-Nigerian filmmaker, choreographer and DJ based in Helsinki. His work explores themes of migration, identity and the intersections of culture within society and the communities around him, to weave intimate stories of magic, perseverance and hope.
Perceive sea, dunes, mountains in move, is a group exhibition featuring the works of seven artists who work across installation, sculpture, sound and film. The works of Ama Essel, Sasha Huber, Ima Iduozee, Liisa-Irmelen Liwata, Mikki Noroila, Man Yau and Haliz Yosef traverse across diasporic experiences, narratives, emotions, place-making, commonality, and belonging. Employing various conceptual starting points and an array of materials and techniques, the group exhibition makes tangible the manners in which visual artists analyse and embody their local, national, and global identities.
