Anthony Ngoya’s prefers to use found objects such as used fabric, pieces of floor tiles in his old artist studio, or waste found on construction sites. Facing these beaten-up materials, which are already infused with meaning, he channels their innate beauty beyond the hackneyed concepts they are associated with. Ngoya’s work breathes; it is in good part due to the artist’s pronounced sense of space that he instils into every work and installation, combined with his almost seasoned use of colours. No less important is that by liberating the waste or used materials from narrowly defined connotations, the artist infuses new life into these otherwise useless objects, and they begin to breathe, inhale and exhale the fresh air endowed with new meanings. Following his studies in Brussels, Ngoya’s work has been exhibited across Europe.
