About the Artist

Born in Cornwall, 1980’s. Libita Sibungu is an interdisciplinary artist who draws on her British-Namibian heritage to make discursive works that explore personal histories and colonial legacies inscribed in the body and land. Often creating audio-visual outcomes rooted in performance, collage and sound ecologies. Libita’s work seeks to usher subversive pathways into the present through reimagining materiality, movement and collective healing in relationship to the environment.

Co-creating with music producers, artists, and ancestors. Libita transmutes; feelings, memories and matter with experimental analogue photographic processes, installations and soundscapes. Investigating the metaphysical remnants of intergenerational trauma through sub-bass submersions and vocal laments, transmitted and imbued with silt, rock, water and crystal frequencies and configurations.

Libita is currently developing workshops with POC, producing a vinyl record edition, and broadcasting a new commission with the Bristol Beacon. She is the (2022) recipient of both the Paul Hamlyn and Arts Foundation Future awards. Exhibitions have been presented with; Kunsthall Trondheim, Norway (2023); Sonsbeek, Netherlands, (2021); Spike Island, Gasworks, (UK), Cabaret Voltaire, Switzerland, (2019); Kalashnikovv Gallery, Johannesburg (2018); Diaspora Pavilion, 57th Venice Biennale (2017).
