Tabita Rezaire is infinity incarnated into an agent of healing, who uses art as a means 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, she reminds us to access our inner data centres and bypass western authority to download directly from soul.
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. Tabita has shown her work internationally – Serpentine London; MoMa NY; New Museum
NY; Gropius Bau Berlin; MMOMA Moscow, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; HEK Basel; ICA London; V&A London; National Gallery Denmark; The Broad LA; MoCADA NY; Tate Modern London; Museum of Modern Art Paris – and contributed to several Biennales such as the Guangzhou Triennial, Athens Biennale, Kochi Biennale in 2018, Performa and
Karachi Biennale in 2017 and Berlin Biennale in 2016.
Premium Connect envisions a study of information and communication technologies exploring African divination systems, the fungi underworld, ancestors communication and quantum physics to (re)think our information conduits. Overcoming the organism‐spirit‐device divide, this work explores spiritual connections as communication networks and the possibilities of
decolonial technologies. Premium Connect investigates the cybernetic spaces where the organic, technological and spiritual worlds connect.
How can we use biological or metaphysical systems to fuel technological process of information, control and governance?
Contrary to the Eurocentric‐biased thinking, our information super highway might find its roots in African spirituality. Significant
research attributes the birth of binary mathematics ‐ which is the foundation principle of computing sciences ‐ to African divination systems such as Ifa from the Yoruba people, of West Africa.
We have much to recover in terms of connectivity and its potentialities. As modern science just recently discovered the role of underground fungi networks used by plants to communicate and transfer information, ancient tradition have long known how
to communicate with nature and download its knowledge.
This study of dynamic networks from artificial, spiritual and biological environments digs into the politics of possibilities, where
a techno‐consciousness could nurture a mind‐body‐spirit‐technology symbiosis.
