Ângela Ferreira presents at Lumiar Cité a new work inspired by her participation in the 2013 Lubumbashi Biennial (Democratic Republic of the Congo). The sculpture evokes colonial architecture from the 1950s in the centre of Lubumbashi, the capital of Katanga, a province rich in minerals in what was known at that time as Belgian Congo. The sculpture interacts with the architectural features of the place of exhibition – in this case, its first presentation at Lumiar Cité – and is also used as the screen for two videos. One of the videos documents a performance organized by the artist for the Lubumbashi Biennial, in which two singers present the poem/song “Je vais entrer dans la mine”, sung in Kibemba, the formerly dominant language. The lyrics tell of a man writing to his mother about his fears that he will die having been forced to go down the mines. In the second video, which gives the title to the work, the band of the Park Hotel of Lubumbashi interprets “Indépendance Cha Cha”, an emblematic anthem of the independence movements of Francophone African countries in the 1960s, written by the Congolese musician Joseph Kabasele, in Brussels, on the night an agreement was reached between the Belgian government and a Congolese delegation about the date of independence of the African country.

Ângela Ferreira (Mozambique, 1958) lives and works in Lisbon. Notable among her solo exhibitions are: ʻPolitical Camerasʼ, Stills (Edinburgh, 2013); ʻÂngela Ferreira–Stone Freeʼ, Marlborough Contemporary (London, 2012); ʻCarlos Cardoso–Straight to the pointʼ, Galeria Filomena Soares (Lisbon, 2011), ʻWerdmuller Centre and Other Worksʼ, Stevenson (Cape Town, 2010); ʻHard Rain Showʼ, Museu Coleção Berardo (Lisbon, 2008) / La Criée (Rennes, 2008); ʻMaison Tropicaleʼ, Portuguese Pavilion at the 52nd Venice Biennale (2007) and ʻNo Place at Allʼ, Museu do Chiado (Lisbon, 2003). Notable among her recent group exhibitions are: 3rd Lubumbashi Biennial (2013); ʻBetween Walls and Windowsʼ, Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin, 2012); ʻAppropriated Landscapesʼ, The Walther Collection (Neu- Ulm, 2011); ʻMonument und Utopia IIʼ, Steirischer Herbst Festival (Graz, 2010) and ʻModernologiesʼ, Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw (2010) / MACBA (Barcelona, 2009).

This project has been developed in partnership with the EDP Foundation and in collaboration with Africa.Cont.

Ao descer a escada
Há um degrau p’ra me sentar.
Não há outro degrau
Onde descansar.
Não estou lá em baixo
Nem lá em cima estou.
Estou é na escada
Onde sempre estou.

Ao subir a escada
Não estou em cima, nem em baixo.
Não estou na creche,
Nem mesmo no sopé, acho.
Ideias estranhas começam a girar
Na minha cabeça
Fora do lugar!
