about


ebere agwuncha (b.1997, Chicago) is a designer, maker, and artist based in Chicago via Anambra State, Nigeria. Her dexterous practice aims to hybridize various craft and materials including wood, ceramic, and natural fiber. Through creating functional ‘care filled architecture(s)’ and speculative installations, they aim to preserve Igbo stories through more expansive iterations using a diverse set of techniques. She pushes the cusp of perfection - or imperfection - while intimately using her hands to physicalize ideas.

Currently she works with the place keeping collective, in care of Black women, and Studio Herron, a design studio that focuses on textiles, furniture and objects. She holds an Industrial Design degree from Iowa State University and is currently an inaugural artist-in-exchange with the Sculpture Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for the spring of 2022. Part of this residency period is being used to produce work for their first solo show at the Comfort Station (Chicago, IL) this May of 2022.
