Mohau Modisakeng: LEFA LA NTATE

27 July 2016 - 02 September 2016
Mohau Modisakeng: LEFA LA NTATE

Mohau Modisakeng is the recipient of the Standard Bank Young Artist for Visual Arts 2016 award.  

His photography, films and installation grapple with the conflicting politics of leadership and nationhood, whilst also attempting to unpack the legacy of inequality, capital, labour and extraction of mineral wealth in contemporary South Africa. 

Informed by his experience as a young boy in Soweto at the cross roads of a violent political transition, Modisakeng uses memory as a portal between past and present to explore themes of history, body and place within the post ‚Äďapartheid context.
