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 far from the stereotypical way the country is usually portrayed in western media. Pongo reveals the enchanted natural beauty of the Congolese landscape, imbued with a sense of mystical power and magic. He sees the Congolese landscape as an allegory of genesis and apocalypse, a place that can be imagined as the source of life for this planet and where humanity’s relevance is questioned.
