Performance by Nathalie Anguezomo Mba Bikoro

OBEAH: resurrection. Performance by Nathalie Anguezomo Mba Bikoro at KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art (M0), Wednesday, April 3, 19:00 h. Am Sudhaus 3, Berlin-Neukölln. In German and English. Free admission

The performance OBEAH by artist Nathalie Anguezomo Mba Bikoro to accompany her work in the exhibition Ré-imaginer le passé is a ritual of resurrection and healing.

Nathalie Anguezomo Mba Bikoro is an artist, healer and Black feminist. The term “Obeah” quoted in the title refers to a healing tradition that has its origins primarily in creolised West African practices. In her work, Bikoro applies this tradition and translates it into a feminist practice to help heal colonial trauma. Mba Bikoro explores creolised identity, heritage, memory and home and examines systems of colonial past and present, traditions and mythologies.
