Eddy Kamuanga Ilunga
This Summer we will explore the exciting new works of Congolese artist Eddy Kamuanga Ilunga. Kamuanga draws from the structural complexity of his hometown and revisits the traditional culture of the Mangbetu people.
Referencing different forms of advertising and photography as well as traditional aesthetics, his paintings are an amalgam of complementary pop cultural forms, including music, fashion and dance.
We will respond to these work by exploring our own identity through making our own silhouette profile pictures and then create installations linked to issues facing the Mangbetu people form the Democratic Republic of Congo.
