Ufuoma Essi, the SLG’s tenth Postgraduate Artist in Residence, is a video artist and filmmaker.

Her new experimental film, From Where We Land, examines second-generation Black British women and their relationship with identity, feelings of cultural displacement, and their shared histories.

Informed by contributions of the 1980s Black feminist movement in England and the legacies of first-generation children of African and Caribbean immigrants, the film incorporates archive, VHS and 16mm footage.
