Castélie Yalombo Lilonge is a Belgian-Hispano-Congolese artist born and residing in Brussels. She graduated from the ULB and the Institut Supérieur des Arts and Choreography of the ArBa-Es in 2020. Her artistic practise is situated at the intersection of choreography, poetic writing, and installation. She questions identity, otherness, and relationships as well as the subject/object status of the body. She has collaborated as a performer and dancer with artists Clément Thirion (2016), Fabian Barba (2017), Ingrid Midgard Fiksal (2019), Faustin Linyekula (2019), Louise Vanneste (2021), and No Mosquito Pas collectif (2020-22).Her participation in Faustin Linyekula’s work has contributed to her awareness of decolonial issues, and more specifically the need to re-articulate our narrative identities in the great mesh of forgotten, confiscated, hidden, and dominant histories. Since 2018, she has been working on the creation of several performances, mostly solo or in duet. Close your eyes and This is my body delivered for you are works that led her to the creation of Water, l’atterrée des eaux vives presented at Kunstenfestivaldesarts in 2022.

The public programme of the exhibition is supported by COCOF.

The event takes place in the continuity of the launch of two books co-edited by Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc:

La sphère de Planck by Lionel Manga (Éditions Ròt-Bò-Krik), and
Decolonization is not a metaphor, coll., (Éditions B42)
