Ermias Eyesus

Ermias Kifle-Yesus, installation artist, trained in Addis and London now works in Belgium and England. Ermias is planning with some Ethiopian colleagues to realize a project around Addis Ababa, and he is also working on this project that may link up his contemporaries, nine Ethiopian artists working across on a range of media, including film and video. Ermias Kifle-Yesus hopes to create a ‘collective narrative based on the issue of foreign aid and what the new road means to them and to Ethiopia’. The main qualification in these young and middle-aged artists’ works is their unreserved manifestations of African culture and added to that their individual experience.
