Tabita Rezaire is a French born Guyanese/Danish new media artist, intersectional preacher, health practitioner,

tech-politics researcher and Kemetic/Kundalini Yoga teacher based in Johannesburg.

She holds a Bachelor in Economics and a Master in Artist Moving Image from Central Saint Martins College, London.

Tabita’s practice explores decolonial health and knowledge through the politics of technology. Navigating architectures of power - online and offline - her works tackle the pervasive matrix of coloniality and its affects on identity, technology, sexuality, health and spirituality. Her digital healing activism offers alternative readings decentering occidental authority and preache to dismantle our oppressive white-supremacist-patriarchal-cis-hetero-globalized world screen.

 

Tabita is a founding member of the tech health agency NTU, half of the duo Malaxa, and mother of the house of SENEB.
