Margaret Abeshu (b. 1990) is an interdisciplinary designer from Ethiopia and is currently based in Oslo. She has recently graduated from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts with an MFA in fashion and costume design. In her practice, she works with installation, visual, and tactile sartorial presentations. Her works are based on critical theory, art, and fashion in dominant pop culture. She is also strongly influenced by her fragmented childhood memories, personal references, and her experiences with a multicultural identity. In her research, Abeshu draws thoughts by rediscovering critical perspectives from marginalized thinkers, artists, writers, philosophers, and radical movements opposing and questioning the socio-political realities constructed out of the four pillars of our contemporaneity: imperialism, colonialism, modernity, and capitalism. These concepts are continuously being sublimated in our everyday lives and past knowledges, and extending into the future faster than we can imagine. Creating wearable materials, sculptures, and video collages as her framework and vessel, she continues to navigate her self-exploration into more significant societal-related questions to re-evaluate how we understand realities, power, narratives, and memories in the ignored knowledge in written and unwritten forms. She also discusses how her work relates to Black- and Afro-diasporan experiences and explores the relationship between the body, spirit, and object through her creative process. Margaret Abeshu believes it is vital to recognise our unilateral way of understanding realities, power, memories, narratives, and ignored pieces of knowledge to create a more significant change.
