SALON: THE WOMAN WITH TWO SKINS

No performance info available


Chinasa Vivian Ezugha is interested in history and how history is performed in the mundanity of everyday living; for her, performance is an embodiment of past, present and future experiences.

Born in Nigeria, Enugu state in 1991, Ezugha makes work that connects her to her cultural heritage and to questions about her identity as a black woman living in England. Vivian is an interdisciplinary artist, working in Live Art, film and drawing. Having graduated from Aberystwyth University, School of Art in 2014, she currently lives and works in Norwich. Ezugha’s work has been shown in New York, Berlin and she has performed in venues across the UK.

“It is my dance
It is my ritual
I have a performance
Where I get up
Go to the door
Open the door
Walk out and look
I have a performance
It is my job
It is my preparation
I have a performance
In it I move
I jump up
And down
I cry, I laugh
I have a performance
It is my body
It is my spirit
I have a performance
It starts now.”

“My name is Chinasa Vivian Ezugha, I am a Nigerian living in England. The method I choose to explore my world is performance. I draw and sometimes dance. I graduated from Aberystwyth University, School of Art in 2014.”
