Anthony Ngoya

Anthony Ngoya (°1995, FR) is a painter whose work revolves around the collective memory and the emotional archive. Ngoya ties and weaves strips of dyed textiles and shreds of reproduced imagery into sculptural, draped assemblages and reverbing, colourful installations that question the limits of the painterly medium. These scattered relics of a disregarded utopia are transposed onto found everyday objects and industrial debris. The layered and ambiguous compositions revoke a sublimating and diffusing coexistence of different material and visual sources, therefore tackling the notion of the unconscious, intimate and universal memory.
