Alexandre Kyungu Mwilambwe lives and works in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo. He is a graduate of the Kinshasa Academy of Fine Arts. He is co-founder of Vision Total Group (vi.to). He has participated in several group exhibitions and residency workshops in his country and abroad. and he works in collaboration with Kin Art Studio (KAS).
Alexandre Kyungu combines painting, drawing, sculpture and installation in his artistic practice. His favorite medium is the “door”, for him, it is synonymous with openness, meeting and discovery in an increasingly universal society. His work is built around questions related to the urban space, exploring the parallels between urban mapping and the scarification of the body. His work functions as a “cartographic essay”, in which he tries to build a new and global world while merging and juxtaposing the maps of different cities. It is a way for him to question the city and the mapping of the city, to erase the boundaries between peoples, and give birth to a single territory in the imaginary space of his work.
