WHITE CUBE

by Renzo Martens

synopsis

In White Cube artist Renzo Martens radically examines his own presence within a social experiment, set on a plantation in Congo. He unfolds the intriguing story of Mathieu Kasiama and a group of plantation workers, who produce self-portraits in clay. Their sculptures are 3D-scanned, sent to a museum in New York, and reproduced in chocolate. The New York Times subsequently heralds their sculptures as ‘the best art-show of the year'.
