M.K Nsika was born in Congo and now lives and works in London.
M.Kala is her artist name under which she presents minimalist yet bold sculptural pieces.
Each of her pieces is a conversation piece with an ancient Kongo system of belief in which life and death is a never-ending cycle : the Dikenga.
Her African background informs her practice: she thinks carefully about her material, its context in history and the environment. With each collection, she plans to select one particular material that used to carry great value in pre-colonial Africa.
