Mzuzile Mduduzi Xakaza

b. 1965 in Maphumulo, KwaZulu Natal. Currently living in Durban.

Mzuzile Mduduzi Xakaza’s landscapes draw on personal and collective histories of KwaZulu Natal. His gaze reclaims a land with a troubled history of dispossession, and his craft introduces a dialogue with an established genre in Western art history. Without adopting any overt strategy to mark his work as ‘political’, Xakaza quietly introduces questions of power and agency in contemporary South Africa.
