Anita Safowaa is an interdisciplinary artist of British-Ghanaian heritage based in London. Her work focusses on observing and critiquing under-documented cultural experiences and preserving them by re-imagining key moments using a range of mediums including film, reflective writing and new media technologies. Her work also aims to provide new ways of interacting with archives, personal histories and collective memory, in an immersive manner.
Taking inspiration from the West African Akan symbol ‘Funtunfunefu Denkyemfunefu’, which represents unity, A Single Bracelet Does Not Jingle explores the co-existence of two cultures within one identity, reflecting on daily life in a Ghanaian-British household in London.
