Artist Statement:

The Ephemera Series Vol. 1 was designed to show the essence and emotion of black women. The exhibition also collaborates with black female poets, presenting them with a platform to express themselves through poetry. Artist Dismoc Le Ma takes this concept a step further, utilizing videos in connection with poetry and art to exploit the mistreatment of black women. While also advocating for black women's empowerment.

Akudo Gaius

Originally from Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria, she currently resides in Birmingham, England. Akudo has lived in four countries, including her home country, Nigeria, England, the United States, and Canada. Akudo first fell in love with poetry back in 2012 when she lived in the United States. She went to an open mic in Oakland, California, and heard spoken word poetry for the first time. She was so moved by the art form that she began writing poetry herself. Her shyness didn't allow her to recite her poems, but she found peace with writing and sharing her work with others.

Shaliyah Keoua

She spent her early childhood in Pointe-Noire, Republic of Congo. She later moved to Montreal, Québec, Canada when she was eleven with her family. When she moved to Montreal, her teachers encouraged her to write poetry as a means of expressing herself. Shaliyah had a hard time adjusting to the Canadian lifestyle, so she used poetry as a way to vent her frustration.

During her time in these countries, she used her poetry to teach kids English, French, and Spanish.
