Two Exhibitions: NARRATIVE MEANS and iQhawekazi

Narrative Means
 
The life of an artwork is a curious thing. It begins with an experience or idea translated into a tangible expression by an artist. Traditionally, this has taken the form of a painting, photograph or sculpture, but in some instances, the process involves the artist rethinking the boundaries of those mediums as a way to explore their subject matter. What results is an encounter - sometimes, even a relationship - between the object produced, the hand that made it and those who view the work. Through this exchange, a story unfolds and with it, a new meaning is made.
 
iQhawekazi by Jabulani Dhlamini
 
The iQhawekazi series first featured in the Financial Times Millennial Edition (2018) for which they asked nine of 'the best young photographic talents around the world' to document their surrounds for 24 hours. In this brief period, Dhlamini attended Madikizela-Mandela's funeral and, only after attending subsequent informal memorial gatherings in Soweto, he picked up his camera, characteristically pointing it at symbolic expressions of mourning and memory. Dhlamini was the only photographer selected from the African continent. This exhibition marks the first physical display of this moving series
