FAKA, a cultural movement established by Fela Gucci and Desire Marea, has come to represent more than the ‘performance art duo’ descriptor that has defined the collective since their inception in 2015. The artists explore a combination of media ranging from sound, live performance, literature, video and photography, to create an eclectic aesthetic with which they express their ideas about themes central to their experience as black queer bodies navigating the cis-hetero-topia of post-colonial Africa.

The collective debuted at the BubblegumClubbb Nights held at the Hazard Gallery in 2015, where they presented #Wait Lorraine: A Wemmer Pan-African Introduction to Siyakaka Feminism. In the same year, they released their popular ode to Brenda Fassie, a video piece titled From A Distance. The following year (2016) was defined by the duo’s release of the Bottoms Revenge EP, a collection of Ancestral Gqom-Gospel sounds, as well as a much-talked-about live installation of The Factory at Stevenson Gallery’s SEX show.
