A few words about your artistic journey

I am from Goma where I attended the Yole Africa cultural center for years. This is where I participated in many photo and film workshops. My photos were notably exhibited as part of “Transcend” in Nottingham and New York in 2018.

How long have you been an artist ?

I concretely started my artistic life with dance when I was 14 years old in 2011.

Why did you apply for this grant ? How will the grant support you ?

This grant is a bubble that will allow me to devote myself entirely to this project during the months of July and August. I will have the means to move around in the most remote municipalities and I will be able to buy a license for free photography.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

After this residency, I would like to create a photo studio in Kinshasa and pursue photography and video, both artistic and commercial.
