About the Participating Artists
Vivian Chinasa Ezugha is the Winner of the NAE Open Main Prize in 2019.
She is a Nigerian-born artist living and working in Hampshire. Her work looks at the transition of Black women and their identity within culture from colonised subjects to emancipated figures. Vivian works mainly in performance, using the medium to disconnect and reconstruct what it means to be alive in current times and protest for a world where dreams are equal. She is the founder of Live Art in Wymondham, a one-day site-specific event that aims to bring emerging artists working in live art to rural Norfolk.
Vivian has presented her work in venues across Europe, America and the UK including: In Between Time Festival as part of the New Bloods Commission, SPILL Festival and Rapid Pulse International Performance Art Festival.
Tonight her work is entitled “Having Double Tongue”
