Alain Nsenga

Alain Nsenga (1986, DRC) lives in Lubumbashi where he works as a graphic designer and photographer. He graduated in Design & Multimedia at the Ecole Supérieure d’Informatique Salama (ESIS) where he currently teaches. His photos are a permanent quest for originality and authenticity. His encounter with the Picha association in Lubumbashi and his activities as a graphic designer led him to participate in several workshops and to work with the team of the Lubumbashi Biennale since 2013. In 2019, he is artist in residence at Wiels – Centre for Contemporary Art in Brussels and participates in the Lubumbashi Biennale and presents the series Métamorphose, which deals with identity issues, self-affirmation and the impact of the gaze of the other. A series that also questions a postcolonial conception of beauty.
