•••SLAM•••

JOËLLE SAMBI is a migrant, a lesbian, a feminist poet, writer and director, a congolese from Kinshasa permanently in exile. Her words and works come from the uncomfortable comfort of sitting between two chairs. She writes and slams to find a home : I am from here and nowhere, from anywhere and everywhere. My geolocalisation is out of service. Writing is my drug, I don't live from it but the overdose will ring the end. She was born in Belgium and grew up partly in Kinshasa (Congo). She currently lives in Brussels. She is a writer and slammer, alongside her activism. She is an award-winning author of fiction with Le Monde est gueule de chèvre (novel, 2007) and Je ne sais pas rêver (short-stories, 2002). Joëlle Sambi questions situations of powerlessness in social matters and raises questions about identity, belonging and the mainstream, themes she has developed particularly in her slam poetry and with the group Congo Eza! She is currently preparing her solo.

•••EXPO•••

BAHATI is a self-taught female artist born in Munanira, Burundi. From Belgian and Congolese descent and currently based in Ghent, Belgium. She creates vibrant figurative paintings inspired by her African heritage. Her work centers around bright colors in combination with black bodies being celebrated in a world without the white gaze. Pulling from childhood memories and current events where her critical mind has been pushed to the limit, seeing how the media portrays people who look like her. And how to keep standing tall, while there’s a system trying to break you. Her paintings have a softness and certain flow. But the way these black bodies come across, filling space, is very loud.

MANOE SUNKWA translates her personal struggle with identity into black and white illustrations. The Ghent illustrator is intrigued by the lack of diversity in the media and how it affects us. While drawing, she explores the complexity of the relationship between identity and ancestry. Besides symbolic scenes and noble portraits of black artists, Sunkwa creates delicate, but powerful pen drawings, that the people can identify with.
