‘Forced migration is central to Serge Alain Nitegeka’s Structural Response III. The theme of disrupted lives, disrupted work and disrupted spaces is, through his intervention within the Atrium, intended to enable a discussion about displacement. His use of simple building materials such as pre-cut timber, references the aesthetics of temporary structures that forced migrants often construct.’ _ @norvalfoundation

Memories from Cape Town
The Art of Owanto @zeitzmocaa
.
‘One Thousand Voices’ is an immersive sound installation by multicultural Gabonese artist, @Owanto. The installation highlights gender inequality and the politics surrounding women’s bodies. One Thousand Voices is also a collection of audio testimonies of survivors of female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) from around the world.
.
Exhibition curated by Gcotyelwa Mashiqa and #SakhisizweGcina
.
Ph_ La Jeune Fille à la Fleur, Flowers IV, 2017 @owanto. One Thousand Voices follows from Owanto’s earlier series titled ‘La Jeune Fille à la Fleur’ based on her engagement with archival photographs that depict young girls at an initiation ceremony most likely taken during the 1940s.
