Festina Lente

Euridice Zaituna Kala is a Mozambican artist and teacher whose work focuses on cultural and historical metamorphoses, their manipulation and adaptation.

The artist reproduces the visual vocabulary of historical archives in order to reveal their subjectivities, as well as those that they have made invisible. She questions the appropriation of black bodies through their representation in archives; but rather than seizing upon their history, she attempts to reaffirm their existence. Her work takes the form of installations, performances, images, objects and books.
