In Imaginary Trip II, created with the support of the musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac, Lubondo takes over a former school founded in 1936 by missionaries and located in the modern-day Kongo central. This prestigious boarding school had up to 500 pupils, but did not survive President Mobutu’s policy of Zairianization in the 1970s. The school was to all intents and purposes abandoned, and the heritage of the past reduced to a ghostly place. For the artist, bringing the school back to life is a way of preserving the memory of this place, which she regards as being part of her country’s “historic, colonial and postcolonial heritage.”
