Nathalie Bikoro

Her critical process is informed by discourses of histories, archives and theories on postcolonialism, diaspora, migration, identities, afro & alter modernism and culture. Her work reveals and creates moments of synthesis and harmony between seemingly disparate, bodies of knowledge, cultural traditions and value systems. An exploration of creolised identity, heritage, memory and homeland, the artist investigates systems of colonial past & present, tyranny, dictates of gender, traditions and mythologies. She engages with communities contesting handcrafted economies of art, politics, literature, ecologies and philosophy combining alternative strategies in performance and practice to deconstruct social narratives and work on processes and engagement rather than final products that answer to political anecdotes of the way we live with "Archipelagoes for Drexyian Mermaids", "How To Turn A Mountain Into Pearls", "We Built The Kilimanjaro", "Black A(n)thena", "A History On Lateness", "Future Monuments" and "The Moor May Go".  With her approach both educative and allegorical, Anguezomo Mba Bikoro highlights the different tones of a society shared between delusions and ritual.
