Kitoko Diva is a multimedia artist, director, editor and cinematographer interested in the physical spatialization of moving images, through large-scale installations and immersive environments. Her manipulation of images within three-dimensional displays explores new forms of experimental storytelling close to magical realism, blurring the line between fiction, reality and documentary, where the conceptions of time, space, and memory are fluid. Her installation combines chaotic and distinctive models of modern experience to construct a novel world in which she envisions us discovering a sense of connection and anchoring.

Kitoko Diva is a Fulbright scholar and Howard MFA candidate. Her works have been recently screened at the Centre Georege Pompidou, the Guggenheim Museum of New York for the exhibition “Sometimes it’s beautiful”, the Tate Modern in London for “Southwark Untold Pempeople” and selected for the 2021 annual list of the Aesthetica Art Prize magazine program.
