Patria Memor. which in Latin means "I remember my country", is an exhibition composed of objects and images found in the streets of Brussels. They are here appropriated and detoured to counteract and challenge the codes of colonialism represented in different dimensions of the Belgian society. As an artist, rather than ambitioning to impose a world view, the exhibition articulates an alternative narrative while forging links the city, its history, residents and personal histories.
Patria Memor are also the words engraved on the contented statue of Leopold II standing in the Place du Trône in Brussels.
