MALLORY LOWE MPOKA
Mallory Lowe Mpoka is a Cameroonian Belgian visual artist who works between Tiohtiá:ke (Montreal) and Douala. Her practice draws on archival photographs and personal experiences and examines how individuals navigate places, continually reconsidering the nature of identity and belonging. Her use of photography, textile, collage,s and screen printing refers to reality between many cultures while contextualizing her work in a local and familiar environment. Her recent investigations question the notion of home as an (in)tangible place and the concept of dislocation through the prism of diasporic, transoceanic, and post-colonial realities while incorporating personal archives, heirlooms, and self-portraits.
