Monilola Olayemi Ilupeju is a Nigerian-American artist and author based in Berlin. Through painting, installation, moving image, writing, and performance, her practice confronts the insidious and generative qualities of distortion that are projected onto bodies. As she works through intimate subject matter, she also interrogates the broader political contexts from which these issues arise. She has done extensive curatorial and editorial work with SAVVY Contemporary and Archive Books, among others. “Earnestly” (Archive Books 2022) is her debut collection of writing.
