African Museum at Bozar – Congo Artworks.
Sammi Bajoli, artist and exhibition curator.
Sammi was asked to create an art piece which would act as a welcome to the Congo Artworks exhibition. He saw the piece as something that would penetrate the architecture. The piece, which is hand-painted interprets an indigenous court in the Congo.Congo artworks short film
The colours and detail of the work were extraordinary. It really was a piece which took over the architecture of the building and transformed the space. The handpainted nature is visible here, perfect in its imperfection.
Bozar is a renowned centre for arts in Brussels which was completed in 1926. It is full of art deco details and is one of the most stunning buildings I visited in Brussels.
