They were awarded a Master’s Degree in Visual Arts, CCC – Critical Curatorial Cybermedia Studies from HEAD, Geneva, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Arts from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels.
They are interested in the cultural production of queer racialized artists and they blend theoretical and popular knowledge to promote an emancipatory discourse. Music allows them to travel through time to share forgotten stories and create spaces for expression where multiple bodies and identities can blossom.
