Krishna Luchoomun

b. 1962, Mauritius.

Krishna Luchoomun is an artist, art lecturer and organiser from Mauritius. He is the co-founder of pARTage, an artist led art organisation working for the promotion of contemporary art in Mauritius.


Because of its colonial past, Mauritius is an island where different cultural groups pretend to live together. Since my early childhood, I have been exposed to different customs and traditions and this has helped shape my awareness of the world, of what it means to be human and of the innate need that most of us have to connect – physically, emotionally and spiritually – with other human beings and with the natural world. This sensitivity is at the heart of my practice. I use clothing not only as a basic material, but essentially as a means of artistic expression to revisit both slavery and indentureship to explore issues pertaining to Identity, multiculturalism and nationhood. And linking these to the reality of today’s world in relation to life, culture, economy and politics of Mauritian society.

Sultana Haukim

b. 1974, Quatre-Bornes, Mauritius

Sultana Haukim’s paintings and installations focus on issues affecting women in society such as female identity, sexual abuse and the dowry system.

For the past few years my works have been focused on issues related to the life of women in our modern society. Being a daughter, a sister, a wife and a mother, I have experienced the inequalities and prejudices towards woman and have better understood the situation of woman in the world. My status as a female artist gives me the possibilities to express and explore this closer universe of women.

My work also addresses the social and psychological dimensions of women’s experience in contemporary societies. Issues about female identity, femininity, concepts of beauty, female genital mutilation, oppression, sexual abuse, abortion and the dowry system, are among the different issues that I have been analyzing in my artwork.

I use mannequins as a metaphor of the female body, being seen as an object to please. From lifeless and dumb, my intervention on them opens doors to various interpretations; colour, matter, out-cuts, assemblage, optical play are some of the ingredients which give the mannequins an alternative look to keep the eye alert and the mind awakened so as to create meaningful change for the future of women.

Burning Museum

“The Burning Museum is a collaborative interdisciplinary collective rooted in Cape Town, South Africa… We are interested in the seen and unseen, the stories that linger as ghosts on gentrified street corners; in opening up and re-imagining space as potential avenues into the layers of history that are buried within, under, and between.”
