Frida Orupabo (b. 1986, Sarpsborg, Norway) is a sociologist and artist who lives and works in Oslo, Norway. Her creative practice poses questions related to race, family relations, gender, sexuality, violence and identity. Her work consists of digital collages in various forms. Orupabo’s collages and photomontages ask the viewer to confront stereotypes while encouraging a dialogue with ideas around identity and post-colonialism. She founded @nemiepeba, a curated Instagram account of written works, images and sounds.
The video installation is based on Frida Orupabo’s Instagram account nemiepeba, which revolves around found material collected since 2013.
