Loyiso Mkize: Signal 2 Soul "This body of work is a deconstructive journey inward.  Here I model light and dark expressively and deliberately as a way to observe the seen and the unseen of the human form.

2018-01-13T11:24:29+00:00

Ubuntu/Uhuru/Awethu If ever the dryness of a language is felt, it is in the misused, overused and ideologically-motivated use of words such as “freedom”, “peace” and “humanity”. For these words, have been used for extreme political reasons as much as for sincere attempts to live up to such notions. In other words, one finds for example in the political speeches of even political

Self Reflection: Benon Lutaaya SELF REFLECTION Considering the complexities embedded within the African context and African identity, the structuring of its land and the conditioning of its people are often characterized by precarious political systems, with dire social and environmental circumstances as their catalysts.

The Scent of Joss sticks: Vanessa Berlein Embedded in a time of increasing technological and industrial change, society is in a state of rapid, constant redressing. We open ourselves to an array of costumes tailor-made to perform in unique or a vast range of contexts and circumstances.
