Roxane Mbanga (1996) is a storyteller, a multimedia artist working at the junction of fashion, film, graphic design, photography, writing, and performance. Through her installations, she highlights the perception of the self. Naked, covered with facial jewelries, embodied by objects, in movement on the crowded streets of Lagos, dressed to reveal the strength or staying still in the silence of oppression, the body speaks. Between invisibilization and hypervisibilization, she questions the place of black women in public spaces and offers the audience tools for reflection on this matter.
Recently she won the Lichting Prize with her installation NOIRES and her work fashion and video work Naked underneath. Thanks to this prize she can start the international tour of NOIRES. During her stay at the residency, she will work on new elements for the first date of the tour starting in Amsterdam.
