Artist / Harold Offeh

(nominated by Jananne Al-Ani) Another artist using extensive research from many sources to build a context for his work. Humour is an important tool for Offeh in that it allows the audience to unravel complex relationships with the subject. The video work recreates a Grace Jones pose from an album cover. Offeh learned that the photo was manipulated and therefore impossible to recreate exactly and his attempts become surrealistically comic.
