Echo museum - the archive body is an experimental and inclusive work. It is conceived as a material and immaterial receptacle for encounters, conversations, life stories, listening posture and exchanges. My residence in Lubumbashi is experienced as a situated mapping that aims to reflect on the problems discussed during the meetings throughout my stay.
In an urgent context of real and metaphorical air pollution, existential thrauma on bodies and modes of reaction, survival are a kind of spatialization of affected territories during geo-location (from here or elsewhere).
The installation reads like an architecture where different temporalities and moving narratives intersect. The work is unfinished because it is perpetually nourished by conversations in progress, conversations moreover to keep us awake on the obvious challenges to be taken up. It raises a reflection based on the capitalist deregulation generated on the bodies.
