Opening Biasasa Art Centre: "Ubatizo" by Fundi Mwamba Gustave & Antje Van Wichelen

The Biasasa art centre in partnership with Antje van Wichelen have been working on an experimental horror movie project using a 16 mm Paillard Bollex and other types of cameras. They will share the result of their work and research at the occasion of the 7th edition of the Lubumbashi Biennial.

In the exhibition they will illuminate the world of Docteur Fundi, with his research and the archive of his predecessor from 1929, about a dangerous disease set in motion by toxic mining. This concerns notebooks with formulas, petri dishes with bacterial cultures and archive films. We also show experiments of how environmental toxicity affects and edits the film.
