Rotate 1 Mechanism

Karimah Ashadu + RM&CO

RM&CO are delighted to have been appointed by Karimah Ashadu to re-design her existing website and online presence. Karimah is a British/Nigerian Video Artist and Spatial Designer. She works with film to explore the relationship between performance and narration. Her work is sometimes playful, and is often supported by architectural mechanisms that are specifically designed and created for her performances. These mechanisms probe space and are fundamental to the introduction of notions like the role of perspective in storytelling.

She has exhibited internationally such as Transmediale Festival for Digital Art and Culture, Berlin; Sandwell Arts Trust, West Midlands and The South London Gallery, London. She lives and works in London.

Shown above is a work in progress from Karimah. ‘Rotate 1 Mechanism’ — as used in the film ‘Apapa Amusement Park’ (2013), image courtesy of the artist. For more information on the artist please visit her existing website.
