    Clinton Kabena (Kinshasa, Congo, 1993) makes work that varies from graphic design to sculptures and installations.

    In his practice, Kabena tells stories that are often underexposed. Recently, he has concentrated on the concept of “baggage” in relation to migration. For Kabena, baggage is usually heavy, with painful contents. The majority of his work is concerned with the baggage left behind during processes of migration. It also addresses how baggage can apparently become a commodity, a colorful object full of novelties, ready to embark on its next destination. Kabena's work is focused on the transformative nature of journeys, particularly African migration, and the resilience of the individuals who undertake them. The vehicles work as a frame that holds and moves different stories.
