wani toaishara: a most beautiful experiment

West Space is thrilled to premiere new work by Congolese artist wani toaishara in partnership with Multicultural Arts Victoria for PHOTO 2024. With a most beautiful experiment, wani responds to artist Jean Depara’s documentation of Kinshasa’s nightlife through film installation, blending past and present in a form of temporal collapse.

This work is an attempt at materialising Black life, love, and resilience as art forms in and of themselves, democratising access to the tools of freedom-making, and claiming necessary space in which to unpack liberation as both an independent and a collective act.
