Kambui Olujimi

Kambui Olujimi was born and raised in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. He works within the realm of ideas rather than within an exclusive medium. Although he has directed a great deal of work in film, his is truly a multi-media practice. He crafts potent social commentary from delicate wisps of myth and whimsy mixed with real-world narrative. Lyrical and elliptical rather than ideological, Olujimi’s art transcends the political sphere, affirming its own autonomy. He received his MFA from Columbia University School of the Arts and is a graduate of Parson's School of Design and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture.

Kambui Olujimi works in a variety of media, ranging from film to installation to photography. His past projects have often included viewer participation in projects that explore social practices such as dream interpretation, penny wishing, and photo sharing. FF Con features A Life in Pictures, an interactive installation functioning as a social space where visitors are invited to exchange their own photos with selections from the artist’s photo archive. For this project, Olujimi provides over two thousand of his own photographs to exchange with visitors’ pictures from their lives. Participants are asked to record and share their thoughts about the personal photos that they have contributed and the ones they’ve exchanged with Olujimi’s archive. The picture exchange mimics the way the public shares images online but that exchange is recontextualized by creating a physical space for individuals to give and receive photographs. A Life in Pictures allows visitors to interject moments from their own lives into a larger shared life in pictures.
