Addoley Dzegede

Addoley Dzegede’s work is project-based and idea-driven, investigating notions of home, belonging, hybrid identities, and existential migration. Drawing from her Ghanaian-American identity, she uses a multitude of forms—ranging from textiles and sculptures to interactive projects, videos, and artist books she—often pairs materials or concepts that seemingly do not belong together. At Thread, she used weaving, indigo-dyeing and video to tap into her West African heritage while remaining open to the unique inspiration she found in Sinthian.
