Sapeurs and Cemeteries

‘Vanité Apparente’, the exhibition of recent work by Congolese artist Yves Sambu — bringing together his interest in contemporary sapeurs and cemeteries — runs until February 24 in Brussels. Sometimes a good antidote to the colorful portrayal of the ‘Society of Tastemakers and Elegant People’ (think of the photographs by Héctor Mediavilla Sabaté, Daniele Tamagni or Baudouin Mouanda) works refreshing.
