Zambia: Implosion for Explosion - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Zambia
Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Abdulmalik Mabellini, Clare Whitehead Mateke, William Bwalya Miko, Matthew Mudenda
162 paintings imbued with humanity, aesthetics, poetry and a sense of nature. A rare and distinctive panorama, which gives credit and, at long last, visibility to the art of Zambia, still unjustly distant from the international cultural stage. The collection Imago Mundi has assembled in these pages demonstrates not only the refined creativity of Zambian artists - mostly young people, as is the wider population of this country in sub-Saharan Africa - but it also highlights the unique and powerful dynamic resonance of their talents. Explosive and vital, like the forces of nature in Zambia, land of the majestic Victoria Falls and uncontaminated parks.
Zambia: Implosion for Explosion is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12cm format.
