Igi Lola Ayedun is a multimedia artist and gallery owner who works with painting, video, 3D digital sculpture, photography and sound. Founding director of HOA, an organization dedicated to a decolonial perspective on contemporary Latino art, focused on artists from the global majority. Her artistic practice is guided by the cultural and biological potential of colours, in particular, the colour blue is at the centre of her current research, exploring global indigo routes, the historical legacy of lapis lazuli and the power of minerals to reconstruct life – goes through the artistic materiality itself and the emotional-visual descriptions of her dream. More recently, her research has been incorporating images created by artificial intelligence programs and the interpretation of brain impulses as a way of overcoming the optical limits of photographic cameras or even the ocular system.
