Deeply concerned by issues of social justice and wealth sharing, Cristiano Mangovo often addresses the contemporary world as a landscape of violence, trickery, extravagance and deceit. Momento do Museu calls for the long-due creation of a museum of contemporary arts for the Angolan capital of Luanda. While the city features a military museum, which reflects its painful and troubled history, the absence of an art museum appears as a cruel and inadmissible reality to the Angolan population and to the artistic community. While the background spectral figure of a dying soldier evokes the country’s conflicting past, the dynamic and composite inverted figure, which shows a connection with a remote sun, appears as the benefactor Angola is longing for.
