Frida Orupabo (NO, b. 1986)
Frida Orupabo explores themes of race, gender, sexuality, violence, the gaze, post-colonialism and identity, working in media that in their nature are fragmented and multifarious. Employing image platforms including Instagram, YouTube, Facebook and Tumblr as both source and tool, Orupabo engages in the simultaneously monolithic and splintered abundance of images that define race and gender. In their wiki-generated content and labile fluidity these platforms both reinforce and disrupt established norms.
