Metro support Emma Uwejoma at Black History Month Live 2015

22 April 2015
Metro produced large-scale vinyl prints with photographer Emma Uwejoma for her part in Black History Month Live 2015 (BHM15), which takes part in Leicester this week. Five new, talented and diverse black artists are given the opportunity to showcase their work in front of promoters, producers, programmers, artistic directors and venue managers, as well as receiving mentoring and support.

Metro was delighted to work with Emma whose part of the project comprises a collection of self-portraits for her project ‘Ngwako’ meaning ‘hybrid.’ It focuses on the self-analysis of her multicultural heritage. Born into a Westernised community, Emma was unfamiliar with the African heritage of her father who once originated from the Igbo tribe of Nigeria. Using a trip to Lagos, Nigeria as the impetus, she has embarked on a personal ‘journey of self-discovery’ to submerge herself in her heritage and discover the culture.

Emma’s general practice explores concepts of culture and heritage through photography, touching upon themes of feminism, marriage and the role of women through a juxtaposition of African and Western perspectives.

BHM 15 is part of Serendipity, a diversity-led organisation based in Leicester and works in the performing arts with venues, producers, promoters, performing arts and media companies and directors who reflect the demographic profile of the UK.  BHM15 will be showcasing unique and varied performances including dance, film, short stage plays and interdisciplinary theatre covering a diverse range of subject matters and contemporary issues.
