Rhea Dillon is an artist, writer and poet based in London. Using video, installation, images, painting and olfaction, she examines and abstracts her intrigue of the ‘rules of representation’ as a device to undermine contemporary Western culture. She is particularly interested in the self coined phrase ‘humane afrofuturism’ as a practice of bringing forward the humane and equality-led perspectives on how we visualise Black bodies. 

 

Her work has been featured at 198 Gallery, London; Somerset House, London; The British Film Institute, London; Mimosa House, London; Blank 100, London; Red Hook Labs, New York; Aperture Gallery, New York; Red Bull Film Festival, Los Angeles; Sanam Archive, Accra Ghana.
