Cover Story, 2010
"Cover Story" is an installation that consists of newspapers packed in transparent plastic bags. It seeks to address the problem of access to information sources and the distance between the rulers and the people. The plastic that covers the newspapers prevents the reading of the information that the rulers claim to make available to the public. I want to show that in Cameroon, as elsewhere in Africa, corporate information is never truly accessible to the people.
