Libita Sibungu (1987, UK) completed a BA in Print and Digital Media, from Wimbledon College of Arts in 2009, and she currently lives and works in Bristol, UK. Sibungu’s solo and collaborative projects explore the politics of the body and landscape in relation to migration, blackness, and colonialism. Her work seeks to unearth lost, buried, and hidden testimonies; to reimagine containers of memory and states of liberation emerging out of fugitive experiences. Performance, print, text, and sound are collaged together to map time into poetic installations. Subungu’s ongoing body of work; Quantum Ghost, has toured as a solo exhibition at both Gasworks and Spike Island, UK, (2019), comprising large scale photograms and a multi-channel audio installation the examines the potential for radical performativity in anti-colonial archival practices - stemming from research into personal histories and sites of heritage connecting Namibia and Britain through; extractive mining industries, settler colonialisms and the Namibian (Anti-Apartheid) War of Independence.
