Nos Motsamai: To Children

Thursday Dec 8 - Saturday Dec 10       Cnr Joubert St and Kotze St, Braamfontein
“On a broader scale, my work speaks to courage, resilience, humanity, and self-expression. This is my chosen medium of expression and self-identification. I find myself in my subjects and create myself in their courage to be." – Nos Motsamai.

Nosipho Motsamai is a Joburg-based artist and designer who uses art to study their inner selves, presentations and gender. Motsamai is first and foremost a photographer but she does not let hersef be constrained to one medium and works across the creative spectrum.

Her exhibition To Children at Constitution Hill investigates childhood trauma, how it effects the ways in which we act later, and how we move forward. In these works she identifies three underpinning themes: rememberance, acknowledgement and encouragement. The aim of the exhibition was not only to create work which allowed her to unearth and move forward from past traumas and shame, but to create the impetus and space for viewers to do the same.

Exhibition opens Thu, Dec 8 at 19:00. There will be a Q&A and walkbout on Sat, Dec 10 at 12:00.
