My practice is performative, contemplative, and transformative. Influenced by
displacement, memories, and my home country Lesotho and Southern African
culture, I invite the audience to find the white spaces or a space to contemplate
in amidst the chaos which surrounds us in the modern world.
I allude to the immigrant experience and the African diaspora through
installation and sound work. I am intrigued with the idea of displacement and
trying to find comfort in being, through sound, installation, and space.
Other materials I use are ephemeral: tea, dirt, coffee, cardboard, charcoal, tissue,
and the earth. These mediums draw on my innate desire to connect with organic
and found material, which are widely used to make things in my culture.
The dynamic between hope and destruction visible in most of my paintings is
influenced by colonialism, the post apartheid era, and how toxic human relations
can be toward one another.
My work then comments on the deterioration of the place we live in, socially
and environmentally yet there is hope.
