But We Are Still Here – Heather Agyepong

16.11.2017

Metro worked with performing artist Heather Agyepong recently producing C-type prints for her project ‘But We Are Still Here’ which takes place at the Tate Modern this month.

But We Are Still Here provokes thought, questions and through a series of events and activities considers how culture is produced. Onlookers and participants are invited to voice ideas and experiences and to listen to others whilst considering how culture is (re) produced through our everyday behaviours and activities.

Difficult questions are asked in order to provoke debate, reflection, comment and action and what it might feel like to be visible/invisible, sharing responses in the space, exchange ideas and share experiences as well as participating in a diverse range of activities from zine making to poetry, performance to workshops.

The conversation unfolding on the Tate Exchange floor is framed by a series of photographs by Heather Agyepong to create a thought-provoking installation. Reimagined as Ghanaian Ashanti Warrior Yaa Asantewaa, Agyepong appears in a series of images that raise questions of value, ownership and erasure.
