Meet Absa L'Atelier Ambassador Nkhensani Rihlampfu

27 September 2019 11:52 AM
Nkhensani Rihlampfu takes a positive stand on the weight of both our country’s and our family’s luggage.

Through his work, Nkhensani Rihlampfu introduces us to his universe of woven realities; a space in which actuality is entwined with the idealistic and notional ideas birthed by our society

Exploring the idea that our family’s responsibilities are carried on the shoulders by paying tribute to their courage and strength. These are the people who contribute to our communities despite their circumstances. They move us forward with no regard to the weight that they are carrying with them. Due to strain of their load, their well-being is often negatively affected and their reward for their determination is usually neglected and unappreciated.

Nkhensani explores the labour-intensive work and the psychology behind what drives this small faction of our community to keep moving forward despite their situation and status within our society. As a visual artist he aims to expose the manipulation of communication through gesture and assumption.

Listen to Africa Melane in conversation with Nkhensani below...
