Ata Ndele / Sooner or Later
The exhibition’s title is inspired by a 1955 Congolese song by Adou Elenga, Ata Ndele Mokili Ekobaluka – Sooner or Later the World Will Change. Working at the intersection of photography and video, Zoé Schreiber probes the dynamics of memory and transmission through an exploration of her family archives. The artist reclaimed and reinterpreted images extracted from Super 8 home movies, shot in the 1960’s by her maternal grandfather, a Congolese “évolué.” In doing so, she revives forgotten or repressed memories and brings to life a chapter of post-colonial history.
