Frida Orupabo: How Fast Shall We Sing

The Rencontres d’Arles presents “How Fast Shall We Sing,” an exhibition of collages by the Norwegian-Nigerian artist Frida Orupabo. Orupabo’s dismemberment and reassembling of Black bodies through these works—particularly the bodies of black women—speaks to and criticizes the brutality with which Black people have been represented throughout art history. Her collages incorporate family photos with ethnographic, medical, and pop culture imagery to deconstruct the cultural process of colonialization, stereotyping, and othering which these images further, thereby pressing viewers to consider the position that they themselves hold in this process.
