Zohra Opoku – ‘Time is the best friend for an artist’

Meet the artist who combines fabric and photography to explore identity, through historical, cultural, and socio-economic influences

Artist Zohra Opoku trained as a fashion and textiles designer, and her works combine fabric with photography to interrogate identity. In pieces like Queens and Kings (2017), she explores the ways that tradition and globalisation intersect in modern day Ghana.

In this short film, Opoku invites us into her studio in Accra, Ghana, to witness her collaborative approach to art-making.
