Atelier E.K Okereke is the new Berlin studio space of the Artist Emeka Okereke. The studio, set up in June 2021, is located in the out sketch district of Weisßensee Berlin and will serve as the European outpost/annex in collaboration with the Lagos studio. Through the studio, Emeka Okereke hopes to deepen and consolidate the multiple strands of artistic projects indicative of the evolution of his artistic practices. Emeka Okereke‘s disposition is one of growth and self-reinvention - all of which is explored through his multidisciplinary projects.
Thus Atelier E.K Okereke will serve as a space for the research and elaboration of ideas, thoughts, and collaborative encounters cutting across artistic and multimedia projects in Photography, Film, Writings (Essays, Non-fiction works, Poetry), Sound/Music Production, and podcast Projects.
Atelier E.K Okereke is a space for the performance of togetherness and the exploration of distances between “here and elsewhere”. Works emanating from the studio space are only placeholders for the processes of human encounters. The studio is a space for the articulation of the process, the journey, inscribed in the relationship between the subjective and the collective.
Okereke strongly believes that for any artistic work or practice to be relevant in our time, it must presuppose some, if not all, of the following components of human experiences: acknowledgment, encounter, conversation, and intervention.
Atelier E.K Okereke holds the above as a signpost as we continue to journey through and within our beautiful world, whose light is dimmed in many of its corners.
