We are delighted to share that Kriss Munsya was awarded the 2023 LensCulture Emerging Talent Award for his photography project Genetic Bomb, a selection of which we will be presenting in our booth at the contemporary Art Toronto at the end of this month.
" With his latest body of work,“Genetic Bomb,” Kriss Munsya delves into personal history and the lingering traumas of colonialism. Born in Kinshasa, DRC, Munsya moved to Belgium as a very young child. In his artist statement, he speaks of carrying “generational guilt, confusion, and disenchantment,” given the wars that have troubled his home country, since gaining independence in 1960. Munsya’s striking pictures are compellingly out of time and place. He’s inventing his own world of vibrant color and lush landscapes, a self-styled pop sci-fi with a hint of futuristic narrative. "
