Following his solo exhibition beginning 2021 in BOZAR, Leonard Pongo (1988) will present a new body of works (pictures, video and textile works) at The Agprognostic Temple. Leonard Pongo is a photographer and visual artist, living between Brussels and Kinshasha. His practice is focused on Congo RD, his country of origin, which he renders as an allegory of for the emergence and evolution of life on earth, hinting at the irrelevance of humanity in a world that constantly moves through a cyclical rhythms. By doing so, he pays tribute to the traditions, crafts and myths of the various ethnic groups who have been inhabiting it and seeks to recreate an imaginary world inspired by the land where these tales emerged. This serves to create an own visual language which seeks to escape dominant representations of Congo and offer a reading of the country based on a Bantu vision.

Chapter 3, Mirrored Infinities is a group show functioning as a mirror image from Chapter 1, Scripted Truths, The Agprognostic Temple’s manifesto exhibition about private mythology, spirituality and esotericism featuring Ricardo Brey, Fia Cielen, Benjamin Husson, Felix Kindermann, Philippe Koeune, Shana Moulton, Isabel Tesfazghi, Lou Touchard and Filip Vervaet.
Whereas Chapter 1 was loosely based on Carl Gustav Jung’s notion of archetypes and the collective unconsciousness, Chapter 3 deals with Jung’s concept of the Double. Besides being autonomous strong works, every artwork in the exhibition is mirroring one from Chapter 1, whereas by subject matter, medium or technical specifications.
