Kama La Mackerel

Kama La Mackerel (born in Pamplemousses, Mauritius; lives in Tiohtià:ke / Mooniyang / Montreal, Canada) explores ideas about justice, care, love, and individual and collective emancipation in socially engaged and anti-colonial works. In their practice, which combines performance, photography, installation, dance, theatre, textile art, and poetry, they aim to heal the wounds of colonialism and multiply possibilities for being. La Mackerel addresses the plural state of violence done to bodies, identities, and marginalized cultures, and disarms them through queer and trans teachings and methodologies. In words, gestures, and images, they create assemblages imbued with resilience and resistance.
