Victoria-Idongesit Udondian: How Can I Be Nobody


This book is not yet published, but will be available from June 2024.

ISBN: 9783777442570 Category:


This is the first publication to document and contextualize Udondian’s creative interrogation of textiles and shifting cultural identities within a global trade system, characterized by transnational movement of goods and people from one part of the world to the other.

Victoria-Idongesit Udondian is a contemporary artist whose work is driven by an interest in textiles and the potential for clothing to shape identity, informed by the histories and tacit meanings embedded in everyday materials. She uses these to create interdisciplinary projects that question notions of cultural identity and post-colonial positions in relation to her experiences growing up in Nigeria and her USA-based transnational art practice. Her artworks examine the complexities of migration and racial / cultural identity in the global context.
