Harold Offeh was born in Accra, Ghana in 1977 and grew up in
London, UK. He is interested in the space created by the
inhabiting or embodying of history. His work encompasses
performance, social practice, video and photography, often
using humour as a means to confront the viewer with aspects of
contemporary culture and history. He studied at the University
of Brighton and the Royal College of Art, London.
Recently Offeh has approached the themes of service and Afro
hair culture through collective live engagements with other
artists, performers and community participation. He has shown
widely both in the UK and abroad.
He lives in Cambridge and works in London and Leeds where he
is a senior lecturer in Fine Art at Leeds Beckett University.
