Reframing the Archive

Filmmaker Onyeka Igwe reflects on the role of history and place in her art practice.

Cycle across London with the artist as she unpacks her archival research process. Working between cinema and installation, Igwe’s practice is informed by the sensorial nature of archives – the smells, the textures, but also the one-sided nature of the accounts she discovers. We accompany Igwe to Raven Row to see their work featured in the Pan African Cinema Archive exhibition before visiting their studio at Somerset House, where she shares the ideas, edits and objects that inspire her.
