Laura NSENGIYUMVA

Born in 1987, Laura Nsengiyumva is a Belgian artist of Rwandan origin who studied architecture at La Cambre and lives in Brussels. Recently using the technique of video art, she explores the dialogue between found objects and human stories. Her installations consist of simple elements that strongly demonstrate the artistic beauty in the arrangement of materials that make up our daily actions.

« 1994 » : is a commemorative and autobiographical work. It depicts a daily sad scene of a Belgian family of Rwandan origin watching TV during the time of the genocide. « 1994 » is both a necessary step towards a catharsis for the Rwandan Diaspora and a unique testimony for the rest of society. A testimony too often overshadowed by other issues related to immigration, or even by bashfulness of a generation cut off from their culture and feeling his sorrow as illegitimate.
