Eseosa Edebiri is an interdisciplinary artist from the Bay Area, currently based in Chicago, where she received her BFA from The School of the Art Institute.
Edebiri’s work focuses on the more challenging conversations we may have out in the world while taking a softer approach to the topic, in an attempt to not add to the ever-growing desensitization of the trauma of it all. Whether discussions on intergenerational trauma, autonomy, or conversations on health and wellness, the way we approach the topic is essential. That is why she takes this tactile approach, focusing the materiality on what is often plush to touch. The color palette reflects this softness with its bright, child-like innocence, hopefully inviting you to soothe the artist's inner child. While Edebiri has been playing with the balance between soft and hard, some recent work has been more lighthearted. She is interested in playing with space, time, and a sense of what could be where or when are you going or are you coming? Often playing on the uncanny and the nostalgic.
