The Jungled Urban Sprawl aka Kinshasa

After almost 3 months still in this kaleidoscopic town of extremes Kinshasa, capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo. A lot of intersections of which one led to a collaboration with Thérèse Muyumba Odito, sculptress, for an installation created for "Maturité", a contemporary dance piece of choreographer Madrice Imbujo. It was presented at the "Centre Wallonie Bruxelles" in Kinshasa on the 25/04. The work consisted of knotted/overtorsed cords mixed with clay and other components hung in the entrance hall (see pictures) + 2 video projections in the theatre (no picts and video footage (as they are lost)).

Also, I've been busy with the organisation ('mise en scène' and co-ordination) of a photo exhibition for
Doctors Without Borders & photo agency VII (NYC).
