Nicole Rafiki - “Mukalenge Mukaji” - (The King Herself)

The Norway-based Congolese artist Nicole Rafiki spent a few weeks at Picha in October 2021. As an interdisciplinary artist, she uses textile, text, and photography to re-imagine and challenge the stereotypical depiction of spaces, contexts, identities, and the people who are affected by Global Migration. Following her residency and the duo exhibition Collision that took place at the end of last year at the Asbl Dialogues (contemporary art gallery at the National Museum of Lubumbashi) with Jean Katambayi, she will present a new body of work among which pictures from the series “Mukalenge Mukaji” - (The King Herself).
