Chizu Anucha (aka chizu nnamdi)

audiovisual artist, musician, engineer

b. 1995, Scotland

currently based in Glasgow, UK

Chimzuruoke (Chizu) Anucha is a Scottish afrodiasporic artist of Igbo Nigerian heritage, currently based in Glasgow and working across sound and moving image. His practice is multi-disciplinary and collaborative, meeting at the intersection of music composition, moving image, installation and performance.

 

His moving image practice is research-based: centring the politics of cultural representation onscreen and the romanticisation of everyday practices through poetic and reflexive styles of documentary filmmaking. He experiments with the formation of historical and fictional narratives, often by recontextualising archived moving images as a means to explore the onscreen depiction of marginalised cultural identities.

He replicates these motivations through his music, working alongside emerging audiovisual artists, DJs and creatives who inspire his portrayal of Glasgow's underground subcultural landscape.
