Thami Mnyele Foundation fellow Jean Katambayi Mukendi will present a performance Electrify Everything at Framer Framed.
Within the context of the exhibition Charging Myths, artists Pom Bouvier b., Marjolijn Dijkman and Jean Katambayi Mukendi present the premiere of the live performance Electrify Everything: Experiments and Observations on Electricity. On 27 May, 15:00 â€“ 17:00 you are invited to reflect on the structuring power of electricity and its relation to resources and exploitation.
Jean Katambayi Mukendi wrote a text for the performance based on the language of electricity. The units of electricity create different chapters that explore the history and the current state of energy production in an associative and poetic interpretation of electric terminology. Trained as an electrician, his works are part of a search for solutions to social problems in Congolese society and the countryâ€™s depletion of its enormous energy resources.
