Jabulani Dhlamini - Isisekelo

Apr 17 - May 18 2019       163 Jan Smuts Ave, Parkwood
Free State born artist Jabulani Dhlamini majored in documentary photography at the highly regarded Market Photo Workshop and is currently based in Joburg. His work focuses on his upbringing and his particular view of contemporary South Africa exploring the idea of a "collective national memory" in the context of South Africa's traumatic past.

For his fourth exhibition with Goodman Gallery, Isisekelo, Jabulani Dhlamini presents his most recent series of photographs taken across the country and continent. Through his integration of ethnographical and autobiographical approaches to photography, Dhlamini's images appear both decisive and critical, prompting a multitude of interpretations. The question of “what happens when tensions are hidden in plain sight?” is a driving force behind this latest series, that enters into a broader conversation around what we do with the history that informs our identity. 

Opening event Thu Apr 18 from 18:00. At 18:30 Dhlamini will be talking about his work with Molemo Moiloa, former director of Vansa.
