'Taming ghosts and why the image became history. A visual performance on transforming the Museum and making sense of the economy of darkness' by Nathalie Anguezomo Mba Bikoro.

Nathalie Mba Bikoro is a leading female artist of Africa, acknowledged for strengthening the collective voice of women in art. Yinka Shonibare MBE says that Bikoro's work reflects Africa's progressive modernism through challenge and provocation. Bikoro's work explores narratives about community, political interventions, memory and heritage. In this performance she will be engaging with the history of the Pitt Rivers Museum and referencing the 1953 film 'Les Statues Meurent Aussi' that featured a number of African masks and sculptures from General Pitt-Rivers' private collection.
