slippery memory, sticky memory
a site for memory, a map of memory, a landscape
Lukasa (Luba): “the long hand” (or claw), is a sophisticated memory device that was created, manipulated and protected by the Bambudye, a once powerful secret society of the Luba.
Central to Luba artistry, lukasa aids memory and the making of histories. Stools, staffs, figures, and complex choreographies complement the lukasa as Luba culture is remembered, produced, and transformed.
