About a Artists

Faustin Linyekula (b.1974) blends theatre, dance and song to
clear his practice of social-political tensions in the
Democratic Republic of Congo. Imagining a physique as an repository he
works with a round of collaborators to physically demonstrate the
dire legacies of colonialism and a shake of a DRC’s
story given independence.

Okwui Okpokwasili (b.1972) explores a collision of memory and the
benefaction in her durational performances, activating installations
designed by her partner Peter Born. Brought adult in a Bronx, New York,
Okpokwasili’s greatly earthy performances make manifest the
practice of women of colour, infrequently sketch from her Nigerian roots.

Tanya Lukin Linklater (b.1976) uses performance, communication and
installations to call courtesy to Indigenous histories. Originating
from dual communities in a Kodiak archipelago of southwestern Alaska
– a Native Villages of Afognak and Port Lions – Lukin Linklater
draws on interactions with her extended family, Indigenous knowledge
and Alutiiq and Cree practice on a land to surprise her work.

Each artist raises questions about common memory, prominence and the
attribute between element enlightenment and vaporous tradition,
severe what these ideas meant within a context of a complicated art museum.

Visitors can openly try a muster during gallery hours or
attend ticketed dusk performances. The programme will also be
accompanied by live events and collaborative workshops.
