Remote >< Control 19: Euridice Kala

Glitching the archive

What happens when archives disintegrate? History has a way of making violent statements, to flatten our views of the world and to therefore reverberate binarial narratives.

Euridice Zaituna Kala

Zaituna, aka Euridice Kala, (1987, Maputo, Mozambique) is a Mozambican artist based in Paris. Kala trained as a photographer at the Market Photo Workshop, Johannesburg. In her work, Kala seeks to highlight the multiplicity of narratives within historical periods and social relations using as a point of departure her country –from  the perspective of what Léopold Sédar Senghor calls the “kingdom of childhood "[1], which is at the heart of her reflections. Kala’s work, which focus on metamorphoses, manipulations and adaptations of history, take the form of installations, performances, images, objects and books.

Kala was the winner of the ADAGP (Association for the Development of the Graphic and Visual Arts) / Villa Vassilieff fellowship.

Kala has been awarded several international residencies and performed at venues such as: The Centre Georges Pompidou (2021,2019), Cac Noisy Le Sec, and the Infecting the City Festival (2017).
