Biography

"I am a visual artist, performer/actor and maker who lives and works in London. My art practice is concerned with mental health and wellbeing, invisibility, the diaspora and the archive. I use both lens-based practices and performance with an aim to culminate a cathartic experience for both myself and the viewer. I adopt the technique of re-imagination to engage with communities of interest and the self as a central focus within the image."

Following the success of Heather Agyepong's earlier series Too Many Blackamoors (2015), her new body of work, entitled Wish You Were Here (2020), focuses on the life of Aida Overton Walker, the celebrated African American vaudeville performer.
