Ufuoma Essi (b. 1995, London) is a video artist and filmmaker from Lewisham, South East London. She works predominantly with film and moving image as well as photography and sound. Her work revolves around Black feminist epistemology and the configuration of displaced histories. The archive forms an essential medium for her and it’s through explorations with the archive that she aims to interrogate and disrupt the silences and gaps of political and historical narratives. Using the rural landscape as a starting point of inspiration and shooting around the local area, Ufuoma will use the residency to advance her skills around processing and experimenting, recording, and working with found footage; and exploring and engaging with The Box Plymouth’s archives and collections to think about ways we can engage and reposition archives based on site specific histories.

Previous exhibitions and screenings include Bloomberg New Contemporaries, ICA, London; Barbican Centre, London; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Black Star Film Festival, Philadelphia; Maysles Documentary Center, New York, South London Gallery; Lisson Gallery, London; and Chisenhale Studios, London.
