    米謝爾‧麥格瑪 MICHÉLE MAGEMA


    米謝爾‧麥格瑪 Michèle Magema

    米謝爾‧麥格瑪是一位剛果—法國的影片、表演及攝影藝術家。她在 1977 年生於金夏沙民主共和國,然後在 1984 年移民至法國巴黎,隨後便於該地居住至今。在 2002 年她獲得了 巴黎國立高等藝術學院的藝術碩士學位。她參與了「再現非洲展覽」(Africa Remix Exhibition)。她的作品在布魯克林博物館、赫須巨集博物館、哈林工作室博物館雕塑花園的全球女性主義展(Global Feminisms)中展出。她參與過一些藝廊及博物館的展覽,包括羅什舒亞當代藝術分館(Departemental Museum of Contemporary Art Rochechouart)、馬爾默藝術中心(MalmЪ Konsthall)以及格拉茨美術館(Kunsthaus Graz)。麥格瑪是很多專文的主角,例如瑞秋‧多納迪歐(Rachel Donadio)在 2015 年為《紐約時報》所著的〈從剛果探索藝術世紀〉(Century of Art From Congo)。


    麥格瑪將自己的作品置於所謂的過渡區域之中,那是某種她所創造的心靈空間或邊界,位於「南方國家」與「北方國家」之間。對她女性身份的探索由於在時間、記憶與歷史之中被剝奪了家鄉,因此反映出一個其身份完全不具異國色彩的女性。對她而言,關鍵的重點在於培養個人的故事以及集體記憶與歷史間的交流。麥格瑪遊走在一條界線之上,在她的兩邊分別是個人經驗的侷限和集體焦慮所包含的寬廣視野。


    Michèle Magema is a Congolese-French video, performance, and photography artist. She was born in Kinshasa Démocratic Républic of Congo in 1977. She emigrated to Paris, France in 1984, where she currently resides. In 2002 she received her MA in fine arts from l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts de Cergy. She has participated in the Africa Remix Exhibition. Her work has been exhibited in the Global Feminisms exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, the Hirshoron Museum, and Sculpture Garden, the Studio Art Museum in Harlem. She has had several gallery and museum exhibitions, including at the Departemental Museum of Contemporary Art Rochechouart, Malmö Konsthall and at the Kunsthaus of Gratz. There have been many articles about Michèle Magema, including 'Exploring a Century of Art From Congo' written by Rachel Donadio for New York Times in 2015.


    She places her work within an intermediate zone, a sort of a mental space or a frontier that she created, which she situates between the "Southern countries" and the "Northen countries". The exploration of her feminine identity displaced through time, memory, and history, reflects the image of a woman with a new identity that is totally detached from exoticism. A key focus, for her, is articulating a permament exchange between individual stories, collective memory and History. Michèle Magema walks the line between the limits of personal experience and the wider outlook shared by collective anxieties.
