Biographies

Zehra Arslan is an artist and writer based in London.

She is currently preparing for a show at the Gesellschaft für Zeitgenössische Kunst in Osnabrück, Germany. She is a co-founder of the sound and choreography research group YATTA.

Olu Ogunnaike (b.1986, London, UK) is an artist whose practice sits between experiments in sculpture, drawing, performance and installation. In 2013 Ogunnaike developed a pastiche of the industrial sheet material OSB, deploying it to explore ideas that outline the intimacies of the socio-political spaces we occupy, with an interest in the rituals and events that inform our sense of individual and collective self becoming, and as result the spatial actions that can frame them in our now.

Recent exhibitions include: Il Cielo a Calci, co-curated by 63rd-77th Steps and Rosanna Puyol, Jupiter Woods, London (March 2017); Off to Mahagonny, curated by Canan Batur, Peckham Rye, London (October 2016); Let Me Just Put My Face On, Greatorex, London (July - August 2016); STUB, Satellité of Love, Rye Lane Studios, London (March 2015). As of October 2017 Ogunnaike will begin studying at the Royal Academy of Arts.

Atiéna Oyugi (b.1990, Paris, France) lives and works between London and Paris. Her practice includes installations, performances, maps, interviews, live music and audio portraits in response to social architecture.

Selected solo exhibitions include: Polling places, Penarth Center (London), tôle, Greatorex (London), La Femme Suite, All Welcome (Vilnius), Kärcher, Lima Zulu (London),

She runs the radio show 3:04 on NTS radio and performs as part of the girl band Portia Lewis.
