Tabita Rezaire

Tabita Rezaire is infinity incarnated into an agent of healing, who uses art as a mean to unfold the soul. Her cross-dimensional practices envision network sciences - organic, electronic and spiritual - as healing technologies to serve the shift towards heart consciousness. Navigating digital, corporeal and ancestral memory as sites of struggles, she digs into scientific imaginaries to tackle the pervasive matrix of coloniality and the protocols of energetic misalignments that affect the songs of our body-mind-spirits. Inspired by quantum and cosmic mechanics, Tabita’s work is rooted in time-spaces where technology and spirituality intersect as fertile ground to nourish visions of connection and emancipation. Through screen interfaces and collective offerings, her digital healing and energy streams remind us to access our own inner data center, to bypass western authority and download directly from source. Tabita is based in Cayenne, French Guyana. She has a Bachelor in Economics (Fr) and a Master of Research in Artist Moving Image from Central Saint Martins (Uk). Tabita is a founding member of the artist group NTU, half of the duo Malaxa, and the mother of the energy house SENEB.

Premium Connect envisions a study of information and communication technologies (ICT). It explores African divination systems, the fungi underworld, ancestors’ communication, and quantum physics to (re)think our information conduits. Embracing the idea that ICT acts as a mirror for the organic world capable of healing or harming, depending on its usage and users, Premium Connect investigates the cybernetics spaces where the organic, technological, and spiritual worlds connect. How can we use biological and esoteric systems to fuel technological process of information, control, and governance? Overcoming the organism/spirit/device dichotomies, this work explores spiritual connections as communication networks and the possibilities of decolonial technologies. Contrary to biased, Eurocentric thinking, our information super highway might find its roots in African spirituality. Significant research attributes the birth of computing sciences to African divination systems such as the Ifa system of the Yoruba people of East Africa, which appears to be the origin of binary mathematics, today the functioning principle of computing sciences.




Sugar Walls Teardom

Tabita Rezaire researches technology politics, the legacies of colonialism, and methods of self-actualization by connecting ancient knowledge systems with new technologies and quantum physics through, among others, spiritual technologies such as Kemetic yoga and sound healing. In her installation Sugar Walls Teardom, exhibited at AB6, she explores how bodies, and the womb especially, have been exploited historically and continue to be subjected to control exerted by the medical-legal-industrial complex through today. The work comprises a pink gynaecologist chair and points to medical research conducted on unconsenting enslaved women, such as the series of experiments the Alabama surgeon Dr. J Marion Sims performed on enslaved African women between 1845 and 1849. Rezaire’s examination chair celebrates the contribution of Black women’s wombs in the history of science. According to the artist, nature and the womb are the original technology, yet colonial and capitalist exploitation have caused a disconnection between the body and the self. Sugar Walls Teardom addresses the exclusion of Black women from the dominant narrative of technological progress and the simultaneous exploitation of their bodies for so-called scientific achievements.





A virtual apology on behalf of the western world. Trying to provide an apology for slavery, colonialism, segregation, apartheid, exploitation and genocide of black and indigenous bodies, and the current heritage of the colonial matrix power that is capitalism, white supremacy, and hetero-patriarchy, the work questions the apology-forgiveness narrative. What is the function of an apology? Who benefits from the apology? What power structures are hidden behind our apologetic age? Why do we need an apology? Should the present apologize for the past? What about forgiveness? Can an apology ever be enough to move on? And what is the face of oppression today?
