Moridja Kitenge Banza [born in 1980, in Kinshasa, Congo Republic], is a Canadian artist of Congolese origin. He graduated from the Fine Arts Academy of Kinshasa (1999) and from the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Nantes Métropole, France (2008).
In 2010 he was awarded the first prize at the Dakar Biennale for his video Hymne à nous and his installation 1848 à nos jours. His work has been presented at the Musée Dauphinois in France, at the Roskilde Museum of Contemporary Art in Denmark, at the Arndt Gallery and at the Ngbk in Berlin, at the Attijariwafa bank foundation in Morocco, at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, South Africa, and at Joyce Yahouda Gallery in Montréal.
His artistic approach lies somewhere between fiction and reality and serves as the means by which he questions history, memory and identity through the lens of social, economic and political contexts.
The Print Atelier is proud to partner with established curator and gallery owner Joyce Yahouda through a selection of art works of Joyce’s choice.
