Anna Tje is an artist, researcher and community organizer born in 1989, that lives and works in the outskirts of Paris, France. Through a transdisciplinary practice, Anna Tje works in video, performance, installation, sculpture and aims to deconstruct the survival mechanisms of healing in “subcultures”. Navigating through contemporary creation and research, she uses moving images, poetic writings, archival conversations, sounds, body gestures, textiles and fruit & plant matter, in order to explore intimacy, trauma, resilience from the black womxn experience. Thus, Anna Tje creates immersive spaces that interrogates mythology and the social constructions of past-present-future space and time, in relation to various forms of queer eroticism and family ties and narratives. Pulling from her personal archive – often-time using her Cameroonian cultural heritage and landscape – and from the works of black womxn feminists and queer activists and theorists, she makes use of Utopia, speculative fiction, spirituality and mysticism as vectors of emancipation and interconnectivity. Co-founder of Atayé, an art collective and online magazine based in the Paris area, Anna Tje studied at the Mod’Art International Paris Fashion School before exploring Media. Graduate of a Masters in publishing and communications from the University of Cergy, she is deepening her research and artistic practice through a thesis in the PhD. in Practice at the Academy of Fine Arts of Vienna. In 2019, she participated in two major art fellowships in Dakar, Senegal: The Raw Academy session 7 “Images for our times” at Raw Material Company (led by Eric Baudelaire, with the presence of Koyo Kouoh and filmmakers John Akomfrah, Alfredo Jaar, Mati Diop etc) ; “The Workshops of thought” (Ateliers de la Pensée), founded by philosophers Achille Mbembe and Felwin Sarr. She is currently part of the Sex Ecologies program runned by the Trondheim Kunsthall and The Seed Box. Her work was published in Afrikadaa Magazine as well as Ex Nihilo Magazine and she contributed to the Afrocyberféminismes cycle in Paris (2018).
