Francis Nii Obodai Provencal was born–and is currently based–in Accra, Ghana. He has also lived in England, and Nigeria. Provencal’s work explores our expansive relationship with aspects of urban and rural culture, and the environment. His camera is not a detached eye, but a tool for conscious expression of self-discovery: both on his part and for others involved in front of his lens or, part of the audience seeing his work. Nii Obodai has exhibited widely.
Initially trained as a photographer and researcher (BFA, MFA, MA) at several universities in the Netherlands, Andrea is currently finalising a practice based doctoral thesis and run a hybrid artistic practice in which she continuously switches roles; from photographer to researcher, from curator to teacher. Most of the photographs she makes and does things with come from – and show fragments of pasts on – the African continent in general and east African country Uganda in particular. As part of her practice she digitises, shares and activates photo collections that were previously not accessible on different platforms. They find their way onto the archival platform www.HIPUganda.org, in exhibitions and in publications. The exhibitions and publications are both presentations of research results and experiments leading to next stages of the things she does. They try to contribute to a growing understanding of histories told in various contexts and to diverse audiences.
