As part of the series ULTRASANITY. ON MADNESS, SANITATION, ANTIPSYCHIATRY AND RESISTANCE, Elisabeth Bakambamba Tambwe will show her performance ABSTRACTION on the 25th of January at Savvy Contemporary.
Performance by Elisabeth Bakambamba Tambwe.
Afflicted by the social environment, the individual is given an identity with birth: name, first name, as well as identity-forming characteristics, such as gender, cultural and social background. This totality forms the universal framework of the enforced identity of the individual. In contrast, Tambwe’s performance is like a caterpillar creeping into a cocoon and reappearing as a grotesque form – a newly invented, abstracted and confused body that allows us new interpretations of its own.
