Anna Irina Russell
Based in Dakar, Senegal, Raw Material Company is an independent, collaborative centre that aims to foster critical thinking through artistic practice. The project was founded in 2008 at the initiative of curator Koyo Kouoh, with a socially committed, pan-African, translocal vision and a programme that revolves around the research, promotion and dissemination of contemporary culture in and from Africa.
Anna Irina Russell (ES) is a sound artist based in Barcelona. Her artistic practice uses playfulness as a tool for research into her environment. Seeing the public not as an object but as a subject, she creates performances and installations that explore the relationship between the body and its surroundings.
