about

cecile emeke is an artist and filmmaker from london. her work explores time, epistemology and cultural production, through the prism of the black diasporic experience, often with particular emphasis on black british, caribbean and london culture, within liminal, interior and intimate spaces of a relational, physical, emotional and/or psychic nature. her work is preoccupied with subtly foregrounding modern and contemporary acts of ritual that emerge unconsciously within mundane and personal settings, thereby unfolding hidden spheres of life that hide in plain sight. her work has been exhibited and screened extensively, including presentations at the ica london, ica boston, the brooklyn museum, the museum of contemporary art chicago, and the national gallery of jamaica, amongst other institutions. she has spoken at oxford university, cambridge university, the institute of education, the university of edinburgh and the university of toronto, amongst other venues. she is currently developing several television, feature film, virtual reality and moving image projects, including her writer-directorial debut feature film, supported by bbc films.
