Evan Ifekoya

Our partners

Evan Ifekoya was born in Iperu, Nigeria in 1988 and currently lives and works in London. Ifekoya’s work in sound, text, video and performance is an extension of their calling as a spiritual practitioner. They view art as a site where resources can be both redistributed and renegotiated, whilst challenging the implicit rules and hierarchies of public and social space.

Their work has been shown in a number of institutions and exhibitions around the world, including: Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst (2022, Switzerland); Herbert Museum andGallery Coventry (2021, UK); CAPC Bordeaux (2020, France); Gasworks London(2018, UK) ; Stevenson Gallery (2016, South Africa); Serpentine Galleries(2016, UK).


Evan Ifekoya is developing research for an artist's book exploring contemporary mysticism and the transformative potential of sound- from the cellular to the cosmic. A Ripple Reflected, Devotion Divined is part of a larger body of research that includes lectures, performance and workshops investigating the sacredness and healing potential of sound with the elevation of black consciousness in mind.

Ifekoya will hold space for multidimensional being and doing with others, drawing on the elements of water and fire to create ritual instruments within their studio.
