Considering Fabric | Zohra Opoku

Zohra Opoku examines the politics of personal identity formation through historical, cultural, and socio-economic influences, particularly in the context of contemporary Ghana.

Opoku's explorations have been mostly through the lens of her camera; Her photography is expressed through screen-printing and alternative photo processing on varieties of natural fabrics. She repeatedly integrates family heirlooms and her own self-image into her visual observations of Ghana’s cultural memory. Her practice centers around textiles and traditional Ghanaian dress codes, which have been an inherent part of the country’s identity and industry throughout West Africa’s complex history.
