Rezaire’s practice explores decolonial healing through the politics of technology. Navigating architectures of power–online and offline–her works tackle the pervasive matrix of coloniality and its effects on identity, technology, sexuality, health and spirituality. Disseminating light, her digital healing activism offers substitute readings decentering occidental authority, hoping to assist in the ‘dismantling [of] our white-supremacist-patriarchal-cis-hetero-globalised world screen’, according to Rezaire.
Rezaire is a founding member of NTU, half of the duo Malaxa, and mother of the energy house SENEB.
True Africa declared her among the top 100 innovators and opinion makers on the continent in 2015. Rezaire has shown her work internationally–Berlin Biennale, Tate Modern London, Museum of Modern Art Paris, MoCADA NY, The Broad LA and presented her work on numerous panels–Het Nieuwe Institut Rotterdam, Royal Academy The Hague, Kunsthalle Bern, National Gallery Harare, Cairotronica, Fakugezi Digital Art Africa Johannesburg. She has curated screenings at the Institute of Contemporary Art London, led technology and ‘booty politics’ workshops worldwide and has her writings published by Cambridge Scholars.
