Cédrick Sungo

The Exiles of Paradise, 2020

210 x 160 cm

Welded concrete iron, weaving and spinning of wire and copper crossbars

These brightly coloured metals and wire played an essential role in the 19th century in the southern province of the DR Congo and met the needs of commercial exchanges... but they also bore witness to social rank. Today they are creating a new environmental exploitation disaster. In this sense, Cédrick Sungo proposes a concept as a Congolese, from which his roots are drawn. This work allows him to reappropriate the imagination of his country through the metallurgical culture left by his ancestors.
