ARTCO is extremely thrilled to announce its future collaboration with Maurice Mbikayi.
This artist, born 1974 in Kinshasa in the DRC, currently lives in Cape Town, South Africa.
Mbikayi’s art addresses the impact of technology on Africa. Technological progress is contrasted with detrimental effects on the African population, landscape and economy. Mbikayi collects what he calls "leftovers": discarded computer parts, keyboards, and electronic waste, incorporating them into his collages, drawings, and sculptures.
In photography and performance, he projects his fears about this brave new virtual world, while recording the vulnerability of those exposed to the depletion of natural resources and the dumping of electronic waste on African soil.
