Citizen’s concerns

First solo exhibition of Sinzo Aanza

May 17 to July 28, 2018

Opening on Thursday, May 17, from 5:30 pm in the presence of the artist

Sinzo Aanza is a young Congolese author, born in 1990 in Goma (DRC), whose practice is gradually turning to the field of contemporary art. His pen, both poetic and irreverent, questions the political situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as the built image of this country that “belongs to investors since always, preferably foreigners”. The exploitation of natural resources, the representation of national identities and the excesses of these, or the construction of the image of Congo since the colonial era are themes that feed both his visual and literary works.

His first novel Genealogy of a banality (2015) addresses the mining wealth of the Congo through a story both absurd and lucid. In 2017, Sinzo Aanza is in residence at the Brussels art center Wiels, where he starts the project Project of attack against the image  which will be exposed at the Biennale de Lyon.
