Artist Aime Mpane talks about his installation Congo: Shadow of the Shadow (2005), on loan from the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African Art. The piece uses the play of light and shadow, substance and ethereality to comment on the re-shaping of power during the colonial period in Congo. The piece is included in the exhibition Shaping Power: Luba Masterworks from the Royal Museum for Central Africa, on view through May 4, 2014.
