Born in 1992, in Kinshasa. After studying law, in 2016, she begins her photographic practice. Self-taught, she follows several trainings (SHAW Academy, Online University), and develops installations and video work. In her work, she questions history and collective memory. She considers photography as a restorative practice and an alternative therapy to the traumas linked to colonialism and to the current forms of slavery, the migratory crisis and armed conflicts. The place and role of women in society, as well as the search for spiritual identity, are at the center of her concerns.
