Aderemi Adegbite is an artist-curator, an interdisciplinary artist with an interest in social interventions. He is the founder of the Vernacular Art-space Laboratory Foundation, an artist initiative for artist-run projects. Recently, he created Tutuola Institute – The Yoruba Cultural Institute as both an artistic intervention and a legally recognised limited by guarantee NGO.
His current artistic focus questions individual realities and truth(s) that stretch across the societal fabric as constants for an elastic socio-system. He is concerned about how past experiences (agonies, joys, businesses, travels and religious beliefs) of being part of a family reshape the individual’s present conditions and serve as catalysts for “the” surrealistic future. The psychological effect of the idea “one for all, all for one,” is at the centre of his new interventions through social art, installation, multimedia, photography and video art.
Aderemi has participated in some residencies and workshops: Artist-In-Residence at Bayreuth International Graduate School of African Studies (BIGSAS), Bayreuth, Germany, Residency programme in Jogjakarta under Yayasan Biennale Yogyakarta, Neue Schule für Fotografie, Photography Masterclass with Akinbode Akinbiyi in Lagos, Goethe-Institut’s Photographers Master Class at the LagosPhoto Festival 2013 and The Nlele Institute African Centre for Photography workshops series 2013/2014/2015, Lagos OPEN RANGE 2015.
