Researched as part of my residency at PACT ZOLLVEREIN in Germany, this experimental work in progress is questioning the nature of a living body from the perspective of an African. This involved reflecting on my own childhood traumas and trans-generational conflicts as well as looking at an African body as an archive of trans-generational history. How do I contain the energies that were passed on to me by my ancestors? How do I live with past traumas in the present? As humans, we are constantly seeking to find a tribe to belong to – one that just lets us be and celebrates us. As part of the Art tribe, the residency at PACT gave me the creative freedom to best approach these questions and ideas.
