Allegory Trial
is a postcard featuring images of Kinshasa’s Kinsuka quarter, located in the tourist area of the Congo River rapids. Above all, it is a journey questioning the concept of value in a place where situations, objects and individuals mingle and merge. Allegory Trial was set in the Kinsuka quarter with the aim of creating an ephemeral setting in which to reflect on value and its different forms. It tries to define how, in tourists’ eyes, the value of the Congo River rapids or the relaxing places along its banks, the value of the big gravel plant, the value of the stone breakers’ time and the value of the stone breakers themselves, whose are just becoming part of the scenery, are changing, saying something about society, describing the country and determining an index of powers and illusions.
