Painter, performer and artistic director, Beverly D. Renekouzou has nurtured her imagination growing up in different political/social contexts, experiencing life in France, Canada, the United Kingdom, Central African Republic and Germany.
With a focus on empowerment, Beverly’s large-scale paintings depict a
lifelong process of healing, where black women manifest in a contemplative posture, suspending time to reflect on their non-material African heritage and their condition as women on a Western stage.
Through an expressive visual, Renekouzou questions the richness and
environmental influence that culturally hybrid indivualities can carry. A
narrative that engages a metaphorical migration in search of a harmonizing spiritual space.
The approach is utopian, experimental and goes beyond the presentational principle of fashion.
Leaving behind their first years of independence to the urgency of the COVID-19 confinement and witnessing many social reversals and capitalist limitation. How the mid-X and Y generation positions itself in its affirmation. How kids imagine a better world and connect worldwidely.
