Ebun Sodipo makes work for those who will come after: the black trans people of the future. Their sprawling practice, encompassing film, performance, installation, fiction, poetry, and sound, is focused on devising new language with which to imagine and speak about the body, creating new modes of thinking and feeling the past, and filling, in some way, the gaps and breaks of the archive(s) of modernity, all pertinent technologies for those with a subjugated history.  

Their work finds its impetus in their social positionality/most salient identities: they are queer, non-binary, migrant, African, AMAB, middle class, and black. Raised in Lagos and Abuja, they now live in London.

Their work has been shown and read at 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning Centre, Narrative Projects, Raven Row, Bernie Grants Art Centre, South London Gallery. They have written for Shades of Noir, Arcadia Missa's How To Sleep Faster, Auto Italia, and Afropunk.
