II Triennial of Luanda. 2010

As a large archaeological site, these photos show the same moment in the city of Luanda: on the one hand, the large urban development on the coast of Luanda due to the economic boost of oil, and on a smaller scale, but greater in historical time, La Fortaleza. This place at the top of the city, is prepared to house part of a disarmament loaded with colonial history and more recent conflicts, through its artifacts of war, statuary, tombstones... Like a great store of antiquities placed without any chronology. Both condense a speculative act of presences and absences.
