A GOD OF HER OWN MAKING brings together the manifold aspects of JOJO ABOT’s ever-expanding oeuvre. Her talent is unlimited by categorical confines of genre and medium. The exhibition focuses on the transformative and sacred power of the divine feminine, inspiring conversations around collective elevation and also engagement with our spiritual selves.

An interdisciplinary artist, performer, as well as a healer JOJO ABOT explores the abilities of new and ancient technologies for universal healing. In her art making and ritual, the artist draws from her heritage as an Ewe woman from West Africa.  Her nomadic lived experiences have also been a big inspiration. Her travels have led her across Ghana, Copenhagen, the United States, South Africa, Kenya, and elsewhere around the world.
