Marilú Mapengo Námoda / Mozambique

Mom, I* am no longer Black

July 1615.00

Mom, I* am no longer Black is a ritual in performance about what has been the deepest one of all my deaths; The one I still feel incomplete of language to talk about it. Then, I have decided to stop forcing a translation. I wouldn’t like to commit the fatality of killing my death. The fact is, I have been drinking water, eating and, breathing. Staying in the presence of what we have been dying without living. I have been touching the echoes coming from the deep waters: tears, sweat, fears, wounds, desires, pee, menstrual fluids. I have been forgiving, myself, you, and History; I have been forgiving, everything, including God. I am no longer black. I am back in the blackness.

Marilú Mapengo Námoda is an artist that engages with the Politics of giving birth to the futureS. Their practice weaves language from performance art, Animist Astrology, Storytelling, and healing rituals.
