In addition to being an artist, Jean Katambayi Mukendi (b. 1974, Lubumbashi; lives and works in Lubumbashi) is also passionate about technology, mechanics, geometry and electricity. In his work, he combines influences from everyday life with experience gained from his training as an electrician. He creates fragile and complex installations driven by sophisticated electrical mechanisms. His technological discoveries are part of a search for solutions to the social problems of present-day Congolese society.
