Food for Thought: On Food, Foodways, and Migration
Emeka Ogboh connects to places with his senses of hearing and taste. Through his audio installations and gastronomic works, he explores how personal, public, and collective memories and histories are translated and transformed into or through sound and food. It seeks an understanding of our postcolonial world by subjecting issues around immigration, migration and globalization to a critical rigor. Having spent the last four years living in Europe, he has gained a profound grasp of concepts such as exile, migration, expatriation, and diaspora as they relate to the African experience.
