Restless Landscape #3

Kiluanji Kia Henda
Restless Landscape #3, 2016 - 2021
Digital photomontage, inkjet print on photographic paper
Work: 112.5 x 170 cm

Restless Landscape is a series of digital print montages. The images are an assemblage of photographs of the landscape in the central part of Angola where the civil war was particularly damaging. Thinking about the impact of war on both people and on nature, Kia Henda gestures towards trauma’s ability to root itself into the land, thereby necessitating a process of healing and renewal. By creating the photomontages, he is recreating a new landscape filled with overlapping trees — this process of manipulation is Kia Henda’s attempt at rehabilitating the land from a traumatic past.
