Megapolis Kinshasa na Bruxelles

Megapolis Kinshasa na Bruxelles is an exhibition with a series of new oil paintings called Les Kinoiseries by Bram Borloo, work by Dolet Malulu, a movie called ‘Bxlact vs Kinact’ with performances from Bobo Lomboto, Eddy Ekete, Elie Mbansing, Mega Mingiedi, Darly Mbudi, Nada Tshibwabwa, Nick Defour, R.O.T. and Bram Borloo.

After his stay at the artists’residency ‘Ndaku Ya La Vie Est Belle’ located in the community of Kalamu, Matonge, Kinshasa, DRC, Borloo created a series of oil paintings, called Les Kinoiseries, in which he depicts things and moments that have left a mark on him during his stay. Kinoiserie is an expression used by the locals to express the impossibility in which they live at this moment.

Alongside Borloo’s paintings, a documentary will be screened touching on the subject of performance art in the streets of Kinshasa and Brussels.

In the framework of this exhibition, the projection of the movie Faire-Part will be organised on October 12th 2019 at 8pm. Faire-Part (58 min) is a documentary made by Anne Reijniers (BE), Nizar Saleh Hirji (RDC), Paul Shemisi (RDC) and Rob Jacobs (BE) on performance art in the streets of Kinshasa.
