„First Steps in a Shattered World“
My world has collapsed into fragments and these do not form complete objects or images.
Ever since I was wounded I haven´t been able to see a single object as a whole – not one thing. Even now I have to fill in a lot about objects, phenomena, ar any living thing from imagination.
That is, I have to picture them in my mind and try to remember them as full and complete….
(Fragments of a Text by Alexander Luria)
Elisabeth Bakambamba Tambwe is born in Kinshasa (DRC) and grows up in France where she studies Fine Arts. In 1998 she obtains her Master degree with honors for her work of sculpture at the Tourcoing School of the Arts (FR).
As a performer she has collaborated with, among others, Serge- Aymé Coulibaly, George Momboye, Graciane Finzi, Faustin Lyniékula, Robyn Orlin, Amanda Piña and Oleg Soulimenko. Her reflection in Fine Arts is based on organic architecture and her choreographic work is essentially oriented towards the sensitive and fragile dimension of the body. At the center of her work lies the critique of the concept of normality that she considers to be tyrannical and degrading.
