Congolaise (CATPC) with The Institute for Human Activities (IHA)
Cercle d’Art des Travailleurs de Plantation
In an artistic social enterprise, CATPC and IHA work together to present exhibitions around the world, featuring critical contemporary art by former Congolese plantation workers. CATPC is well known for their remarkable sculptures, characterful figures first produced in clay before being cast in chocolate. The sculptures are a physical manifestation of the exploitation of labour and trade relations. The enterprise continues to engage the former workers in the contemporary art world, creating new works and meaningful commercial opportunities to break the cycle of oppression.
