The exhibition ‘Alley of the Universe / Afri Lunar Station’ brings together two new projects by the Romanian artist Marius Ritiu and Kiluanji Kia Henda from Angola. Their projects reinterpret elements from the diverse cultural and historical backgrounds of the artists into fictionalised short stories either set or originating in outer space. Ritiu transforms the ancient myths of Transylvania into a mysterious tale of vampires and sentient objects from space, while Kia Henda uses the history of an ill-fated Angolan space adventure to tell a story about an African basis on the Moon in the 1970s.
