Bio

Akingbade's practice centralises stories of people within histories of place and displacement. Her moving image works examine social housing and community activism in London, weaving archival investigation and contemporary portraiture. With careful consideration of style, narration, and stance, Akingbade gathers local and cultural experiences in intimate and playful interpretations.
