Biography


Blaykyi Kenyah is a visual artist from Accra, Ghana, where he lived until moving to the United State to earn a BA in Politics in 2019. His practice— which is mainly centered around black and white analogue photography and sculpture— seeks to critically engage with social structures and ‘what remains’, often employing philosophy and critical theory as a lens. His latest project, Secret Places, was a culmination of a photographic investigation of urbanity in one of Ghana’s small towns through temporal and geographic suspension and obscurity. Blaykyi will be at the Chautauqua School of Art Residency this summer, and his latest show was at Princeton University’s Mathey College (2019).
