Julianknxx’s interdisciplinary practice merges his poetic work with performance, film and music, seeking to express the ineffable realities of human experiences while examining the structures through which we live. In casting his own practice as a ‘living archive’ or a ‘history from below’, Julianknxx draws on West African oral traditions to reframe how we construct both local and global perspectives. He does this through a body of work that challenges fixed ideas of identity and unravels linear historical and socio-political narratives.
Julianknxx has exhibited and performed in the UK and internationally at Whitechapel Gallery, London; Gulbenkian, Lisbon and Stedelijk Museum, Netherlands. Upcoming exhibitions and performances will take place at Art Basel, Basel, (2023); Barbican Centre, London (2023) andTate Modern, London (2023).
