About the artists
Linda Lamignan is a visual and performance artist whose work tells stories about the experience of floating in between different worlds. Through video, music, objects and performance, Lamignan explores notions relating to wandering and diaspora, transformation and love. With an animistic approach, they work with materials connected to the industries in West Africa and Scandinavia, and by connecting the history of those materials/commodities to bodies with similar experiences, Lamignan seeks out to envision new alternative states. Lamignan will perform at the event together with Noella Birisawa, Raven Storm og Deodato Siquir. Lamignan received their MFA degree at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen and their BFA degree at the Academy of Fine Art in Oslo.

Oxum Collective is an international multimedia art platform for research and production taking the medium(s) of performance art in the historical, ancient contexts of ceremonial uses of the performative, yet also post-modern expressions such as butoh, fluxus and post-internet aesthetics. It is led by queer and trans* (-gender / non-binary / gender non-conforming) black, brown and indigenous people from the global south but also diaspora based in Denmark.
Oxum Collective presents Orkestra Kalunga. The collective presents a new collaboration between multimedia performance artists Jupiter Child,Tetta Marie Carangi and Sall Lam Toro. Orkestra Kalunga presents a black queer series of live performative avant-garde orkestra evoking presence and communion of African Orixás and ancestrality, bridging the physical and the metaphysical world(s) through the sensuous embodiment of sound. The work functions as a poetic authentication symphony responding to Zanele Muholi’s work; exploring themes of underground resistance, longings of liberation and the dismantling of the colonial-patriarchal-heterenormative matrix by proposing afrofuturist community care practices and sensuous liberation.
Moeisha Arden is a performer, speaker, writer and activist.
Xenia Brown Pallesen is PhD student at the University of Copenhagen. Her research concerns participatory dissemination practices and art historical etnographic research methodology.
