ActionSpace artist Andrew Omoding invited the public into his studio at Camden Art Centre. Exploring themes of home, identity and ceremony, Andrew exhibited the works-in-progress developed during his residency throughout June, including performance, sculpture and installation.
Andrew Omoding’s residency was supported by the Developing your Creative Practice Award from Arts Council England alongside ongoing support from ActionSpace and Camden Art Centre.

‘It’s My Work, Come See, Come See’ is a film made in collaboration with film maker Posy Dixon during Andrew’s residency. Andrew takes us on a tour of his perfect world that he created in the gallery space, spreading happiness and joy and serenading us with a rhythmic music track created in collaboration with artists Jackie Ford and Hogay Houghton.
“It has been fantastic to see how Andrew’s work has developed over the course of the residency. The ambition and scale in which he approached the space has produced an exciting new body of work. He utilised the residency to develop a deepened knowledge of performance, sound and costume-making which has manifested in some interesting new strands to his practice as well as having the opportunity to develop conversations with external and internal curators. For the Open Studio, Andrew exhibited a real confidence and clear vision for the space and how the works would exist together. It was a huge success and resulted in the show being extended for an additional week. We will miss his presence at Camden Art Centre but are looking forward to seeing how his work continues to develop through future exhibitions and residencies.”
