Ambiguous and mystical object,  instrument of metamorphosis and duplicity, embodying the beauty and terror, symbolizing the gods, manifesting the invisible and the supernatural: THE MASK. More than just a disguise under which man tries to hide, but a visible manifestation of spirits. In Woongo people are playing the subtle and delicate play to tell their stories … behind a mask. De-mystifiying and de-coding a cultural object of a longtime exotised Africa, the mask become just a narrative acces to a story. Woongo is exploring a fine line between documentary and staged photography, reality emerges in the time of a cliché, to point out that the two worlds on both sides of the mask finally become one. Opening a broad spectrum of reflection on contemporary African reality, reflecting the sense of time, tradition and identity.
