A few words about your artistic journey

Associate artist at Kabako Studios, collaborates in several projects. I recently signed with Faustin Linyekula, soundtrack and video of his performance "My Body, my Archives" at the Tate Modern Museum ; music and video of "Entre-Deux : Testament" by Dorine Mokha, with whom I co-direct the Art’gument project.

How long have you been an artist ?

From the first professional contract, it’s been 13 years. But I’ve been working in rap music for more than 20 years.

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

Because I needed the financial support to concretize this creation that I started to think about in the middle of this crisis. This grant will help me to pay mainly a few fees and per diem during the time of the residency.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

Produce this work to open a space for sharing with the other invited artists ;
Find broadcasting space so that it can be seen and heard by a large audience.
