Previous Exhibition – eMBIZENI

29 September – 6 October 2018

eMBIZENI (from isiZulu word ‘IMBIZA’ meaning ‘cooking pot’) contains the complexities of Ulungile Magubane’s relationship with her home city as it grows beyond recognition and where inequality still reigns supreme. It is an immersive AV installation.

Currently, Ulungile’s work is informed by the idea that the human life is a series of the economic choices we make as participants in a global hyper capitalist economy. Those choices are informed by personal and societal identities. Her work is also reflective of the vulnerability that comes with living.
