Angela Fama (she/they) explores the tension inherently found co-existing between the temporal and timeless. Her praxis focuses on the inner and outer connections made through breaking down barriers surrounding ‘sticky’ subjects, such as ego, love, and death. From an intersectional perspective, she investigates themes of identity, memory, meaning, and change. In and out of institutionalized settings, Fama intermingles the use of participatory performance, photography, video, mixed media, textiles, and sound.
Born in Tennessee, raised in Ontario and Zimbabwe, Fama currently resides in Vancouver, BC on the unceded traditional territories of the Coast Salish xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
