Art contemporain Contemporary art Guadeloupe L'Artocarpe

When art meets politics: the practice of Nathalie Muchamad took us through her personal experience as a woman artist from Indonesian parents, born in New Caledonia, now residing in France. Artworks presented were about syncretic Islam, the influence of the Cultural Studies, The Bandung conference celebration of 2015 as well as remakes of Hollywood movies and poems.

There is no doubt that Nathalie Muchamad is to come back to Guadeloupe: her appealing art practice has led to a variety of exchanges with the public, artists and art professionals, all interested in working with Nathalie in the future.
To put it in a nutshell: Nathalie's practice is about keeping up the consciousness. An attitude that is verging a form of cultural activism, if not political engagement.

Nathalie Muchamad has now ended her residency at L'Artocarpe. She will be sincerely missed...

Nathalie Muchamad is a member of L'Artocarpe France...
