Kofu Fosu Forson

In the cities strange days sun ever peeping through clouds. Strangers in these strange times pass along cemented paths beaten down by corporate shoes. Late hours warm lounges where people find faces familiar. Love woven into polluted air wearing on the softest of skin. Stark women wounded walk. Men with fingers comb hair from wind. Through these street corners people turn move to sounds of passing cars. Somehow its understood love is neither person place nor thing. It is an affirmation.
Kofu Fosu Forson is an artist, performer, writer and philosopher on subjects of sexual, gender and ethnic politics in modern society, culture and arts. As musician he has written pop songs and jazz songs for various theatrical and rock and roll performances. He has served as playwright with The Riant Theater, where he participated in The Strawberry Festival and wrote and directed showcases based on variations of male/ female politics, artist and muse, as well as dramatizations of ethnicity. Since his directorial debut at Heaven, performance space, Fosu has gone on to exhibit his paintings. This began with Fosu's Muse Series at Eickholt Gallery, where he also participated in group shows. As Press Coordinator, Fosu parlayed his role into helping develop Transvoyeur US, an art initiative in liason with Liverpool. Fosu has used this opportunity to start making digital films. First of which, CUSHION PILL, premiered in England. He's currently a columnist with Whitehot Magazine. These blogs reflect Kofi's philosophy of a modernist culture.
