Helena Uambembe

Helena Uambembe

b. Pomfret, Northern Cape, South Africa, 1994. Lives in Johannesburg.


Helena Uambembe is an interdisciplinary artist (textiles, printmaking, photography, performance). Drawing on her own life story, Helena Uambembe reflects on the erasure of histories of conflict and complicity of South Africa’s wars in Angola and Namibia, and the unspoken legacies of those wars that shadow the present.

Texts

 

Tuli Mekondjo

b. Kwanza-Sul, Angola, 1982. Lives in Windhoek, Namibia.

Tuli Mekondjo’s works vividly express the generative powers of women, nature and the imagination in healing, and build on her early history of displacement as a Namibian refugee in Angola and Zambia during the struggle for Namibian Independence. A primarily self-taught artist, Mekondjo has been exhibiting her works since 2016 and is represented by Guns & Rain.

Jonathan (Jon) Berndt

b. 1950, Ladybrand, Free State, South Africa; d. 2010, Cape Town.
Jon Berndt was one of the founders of the Poster Workshop at the Community Arts Project. Best known for his political and educational graphics,  Berndt’s early creative practice was influenced by the Arte Povera movement. His last major project took the form of imagined public art works, where his acute political and graphic sensibilities are amply evident.

Nirveda Alleck

b. 1975, Mauritius. Currently lives in Mauritius.

Nirveda Alleck is a multi-disciplinary artist who explores the psychology of human social life in public and personal spaces. In her paintings, she works with a combination of staged and studied portraiture, adding elements of fiction, or removing backdrops from otherwise hyperreal representations. In her three dimensional work, which studies a variety of objects and scenes, the centrality of human presence is always implied as a central point of interest.

Randolph Hartzenberg

b. 1948, Cape Town, South Africa; lives in Cape Town.

In painting, installation and performance, Randolph Hartzenberg produces quiet, seemingly un-obtrusive works that gradually reveal a great depth of symbolic content. Hartzenberg’s deliberate use of normal objects acts as the surface of his practice of thoughtful political and conceptual engagement, exploring questions of power, labour and race within South African society.

Maurice Mbikayi

b. 1974, Kinshasa, DR Congo; lives in Cape Town, South Africa.
Maurice Mbikayi is a multimedia artist, working in sculpture, installation, performance and photography. Mbikayi skillfully integrates digital debris with political themes, foregrounding the problems of Africa’s continued exploitation for the progress of the global tech industry. By repurposing tech waste into sculpture, Mbikayi highlights the underbelly of ‘advancement’ – exploitation of Black mining labour, environmental damage and systemic health risks.
