"Matonge - Tervuren", 25 Min., 2 Channel Video, 2014
Video made after a 2 month residency in Brussels in 2012, at Bains Connectives, with curator Anca Mihulet. Matonge Ixelles is the African Diaspora neighborhood in the Belgian capital and Tervuren is a small town outside Brussels where the Royal Museum for Central Africa is located. The museum had a then unbroken discourse of Belgian colonialism in Congo. Via interviews with Congolese artists we tried to make sense of these two worlds apparently so close to each other. The video juxtaposes our 2012 unbraiding performance with interviews and the Congolese Sape cultural mouvement, a form of artistic resistance to the aftermath of colonialism. Shown in "Dispositions in Time and Space" at MNAC Bucharest, 2014-2015.
