Nwando Ebizie

Multidisciplinary artist and curator

An unclassifiable polymath, British-Nigerian multidisciplinary artist Nwando creates Afrofuturist speculative fictions and alternate realities at the intersection of live art, experimental music and multi-sensory installations. She proposes new myths, rituals and provocations for perceptual change, radical care and transformation of the self and community, drawing from science fiction, Black Atlantic ritual cultures, biophilia, neuroscience, her own neurodivergency and Nigerian heritage.

Nwando’s critically-acclaimed works include the multimedia installation Distorted Constellations, left-field pop persona Lady Vendredi (a blaxploitation heroine from another dimension) and ecstatic operatic experience Hildegard: Visions. She has been commissioned by and has had her works shown across the UK and internationally, including the Barbican, Brighton Festival, Science Gallery Melbourne, Hepworth Museum, Institute of Contemporary Arts, Southbank Centre, BALTIC, Site Gallery, Humber Street Gallery, Rio de Janeiro’s Tempo Festival, London Sinfonietta, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and Zurich’s Blok.

As a composer and musician, she recently released a new single ‘I Seduce’ taken from her debut album The Swan – a work of sonic fiction into the imagined world of a matriarchal community – which comes out in early 2022 on Matthew Herbert’s Accidental Records.
