Some years ago, Dinozord came across a cemetery close to the Royal Museum for Central Africa in Tervuren where the bodies of Congolese people are buried. These people had been brought to Europe for the Brussels International Exposition in 1897. The World's Fair included a human zoo staging people from the Congolese Free State, King Leopold’s private property. This is the starting point for Dinozord’s new work.

« Vous avez hanté mes rêves, je veux à présent que vous me possédiez,

être possédé pour ensuite se libérer,

Ivre de vérités pour pouvoir réécrire votre histoire et la mienne…

Que votre douleur soit la mienne,

Que ma sueur soit la vôtre,

Que mon coeur anime le vôtre.

Que ma bouche parle en langues,

Que ma bouche parle votre langue

Et si cela n’est pas possible, que je puisse même vous parler

dans la langue de ceux qui vous ont emmenés… »
