Bodys Isek Kingelez

Born 1948, Kimbembele Ihunga, Democratic Republic of Congo
Died 2015, Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo




In the hands of Bodys Isek Kingelez, the African metropolis becomes an urban utopia. After graduating from secondary school, Kingelez made Kinshasa his home in 1970. Over the next seven years, he studied part time, supporting himself through teaching. During these years, Kinshasa had become a sprawling, chaotic, anarchic city that was falling apart. Kingelez, highly aware of this, dedicated himself aesthetically, politically, and poetically to questioning the human condition, and after 1977, he began to experiment with assembling fantastic structures that offered a redemptive vision for the city. Since 1985, Kingelez has entirely concentrated on what he calls "Architectural Modelism". For Kingelez, this project is one of regeneration: "Art is superior knowledge, a vehicle for individual renewal in improving the general well-being", he stated.

He has created hundreds of models from found materials in which paper, cardboard, and plastic are used to construct the present, the future, and the hopes of an African regeneration. After 1992, he started imagining entire cities. These colossal works are made up of buildings -some playful, some imposing, some utterly fantastic- that are incorporated into a carefully conceived urban grid. Avenues, parks, waterways, stadiums, and monuments are also part of Kingelez's meticulous vision. Together these elements fulfill all the functions of an ideal metropolis that the artist would like to see built. His first city was called Kimbembele Ihunga, to honour his native village, his dead father and his mother, who still lives there.

About the works Ville Fantôme (1995), Kinshasa: Project for the Third Millennium (1997), The City of the Future (2000), he noted: "I wanted my art to serve the community that is being reborn to create a new world, because the pleasures of our earthly world depend on the people who live in it. I created these cities so there would be lasting peace, justice and universal freedom. They will function like small secular states with their own political structure, and will not need policemen or an army."

The current exhibition "Bodys Isek Kingelez: City Dreams" at Museum of Modern Art in New York (until January, 1rst, 2019) is a true consecration of this visionary and utopian artist.
