Roland Gunst, aka John K Cobra, (*1977) is a self-taught conceptual artist, cineast and musician of Belgian-Congolese (D.R.C.) origin, dividing his time between Belgium and South Africa. From an autobiographical perspective he experiments with the potential of the hybrid identity and Afro-European narratives, deeply inspired by the concept of Afropeanism, in response to conflicts and tensions between black Africa and the white West. It is conflict he has personally experienced and navigated since birth.
Roland is artist in residence this season for the creation 'SPIRIT CAPITAL'.
