“Passage” by Mohau Modisakeng

September 18, 2017

The latest solo exhibition by renowned artist, Mohau Modisakeng, is a mixture of performance, photography and film.

In Setswana the experience of life is referred to as a ‘passage’. The Setswana word for life, botshelo, means ‘to cross over’. As such, all human beings are referred to as bafeti (‘voyagers’), a word that points to the fact that the experience of life is transient; it has a beginning and an end, as with any voyage.

In “Passage”, a three channel video projection, Modisakeng comments on slavery and the disintegration of these individuals. This hought-provoking exhibition is on display at the Whatiftheworld Gallery until the 21st
of October.
