Nathalie Anguezomo Menier Mba Bikoro

Live art performance and visual artist

French-Gabonese artist Nathalie Anguezomo Menier Mba Bikoro uses the vocabulary of various art forms to make works that function to create fractured narratives and blurs boundaries between meaning, experience and aesthetics. Her alternative live art performances are unique interpretations of historical mythology and challenging appropriations of knowledge far from ordinary. In doing so she highlights, accentuates and magnifies elements of the relationships present within these spaces.
Her practice proposes a composition of sound, body movement, archaeology and digital performances and encourages interactive response. Her philosophical approaches have been influenced by Foucault-ian ideas on the laws of the body. Serving in re-adressing the certainty of the Hegelian telos, adressing how one creates a space for intensity and understands the form of Being and Time in the constraints of a Panoptic law.

The work deals with developing the intensity of an Event by way of reporting the traces she creates in installed spaces. The body anthropology and spatial environment are used as device for performing the multiplicity of the panoptic gaze and break old stereotypes of representations of origin and culture.

“ I wish to draw, dig and fall with my body. An arena where space and time converge, where the imaginary indicates a play of territorial crossings. The body and its conditions are the ephemeral skin that covers a platform of political fractured narratives and opens possibilities for furthering discussions."

“Crouching to view, Nathalie’s world transports us to a distinctly other place where veiled androgynous figures carry out subservient actions that could be on another planet where the images and soundtrack set up a cultural dialogue in the viewers’ mind as one dissembles the symbolism“. Review by Jane Pitt.

Nathalie Anguezomo Menier Mba Bikoro is founder of DNA Arts Foundation Gabon encouraging the development of creative thinking and practice in Europe and Africa.
She has conducted creative art workshops & lectured in Europe & Africa, curating alternative visual art exhibitions and contributed to various arts publications including the Goethe Institut Nairobi in Kenya.
Her aims and objectives are to incorporate converging arts and sciences into her practice and research and develop a Leukaemia Centre for children in Lambarene & Bitam and develop educational collaborative community projects lead by local people.

Artivism?

Maybe that's why we're connected! Keep up! I am strongly attracted by your perceptions of things and the reflection and power that hang out around your personality! We should keep in touch.
