My King
Beeld 1 / 4   Untitled (Series of 5 Kings) | 2012 | 127 x 90cm | Acrylic on canvas

For 'My King', Pathy Tshindele Kapinga reappropriated the history and culture of his country, the Democratic Republic of Congo. Revisiting his country’s past, from the colonial era to the present day, allowed him to get to know the different leaders, kings and emperors who have played important roles in shaping this vast territory in the heart of Africa. The combination of various elements from past and present, led Tshindele Kapinga to create images of a potential new king – his own king.
