Inganekwane

12 February 2022

Inganekwane is an exhibition by Of Soul and Joy Photo Project students who grew up in a community where violence has been localized.
 
The project aims to interrogate personal histories and continuity of the trauma as a generational experience. It’s through this social mapping that the students’ work intersects collective memory and private memory of the transitional violence that occurred in Thokoza infamous Khumalo street. By participating in the collective narrative, the students’ work provides documentary photographs that are subjectively representational and cannot be viewed as fact but merge the present with the past.
 
The exhibition title Inganekwane is a Nguni word that means storytelling, fable or creation of history through a narrative performance. The title aims to explore Khumalo Street as a site of memory where the community collective knowledge can be shared, performed, and archived. It’s through this elaborative memory disposition by which the interconnection between narrative and history can be established.
