Mar 23, 2017 — May 27, 2017
Opening: Thursday, March 23rd, 6pm-9pm, in the presence of the artist.
in camera is pleased to present two series of Namsa Leuba “Ya Kala Ben” (2011) and “ The Kingdom of Mountains” (2014). In this series Namsa produces what she call an “intervention” on the models and on their typical clothes. She tried to change the classic perception of the West for the African culture. The persistent fascination for African cosmogony emerges in this series through the construction and deconstruction of the human body that is set up in unidentifiable locations and with different kind of objects. Namsa recreates and assembles shapes, colors, objects and anachronistic clothes, obtaining a visual construction that may not have a lucid order. The space is transformed through the camera and by Namsa’s imagination.
