about the residency

Temi Odumosu was first invited to the residency programme in 2016 when she was based in Copenhagen, as part of the Developing Nordic Cities programme (supported by Nordic Culture Point). Her research in the local archives resulted in the mixed media installation Milk & Honey, shown at Botkyrka Konsthall in 2017.

MILK & HONEY
Botkyrka Konsthall, Tumba, Sweden (25 January – 19 February 2017)

Milk & Honey was a situated, mixed-media installation that explored how local heritage archives could activate global crosscurrents, through themes of memory, identity and belonging.

The Dream Keeper
Botkyrka konsthall, 6 March – 21 Aug, 2021

This artist and curator conversation explores the main themes, histories, and ideas informing The Dream Keeper exhibition, as an unfolding liberatory project. Artist Cecilia Germain and curator Temi Odumosu discuss what brought them to this collaboration, and open-up some of the research processes behind specific artworks, occasionally deep-diving the poetics of artistic materials, as well as introducing some of the people and projects who have been inspirational in their work.
