99 Loop Gallery presents There Are Other Worlds They Have Not Told You Of, a new exhibition by visual artist Manyaku Mashilo, who creates otherworldly reimaginings with precise linework.
The exhibition sees Mashilo developing her ongoing exploration of her own form of cartographic portraits. Enmeshed figures perform a multiplication of mappings piecing together dimensions of time, place and space, offering the land and the body as the source of a complex question of spiritual identity.
Growing up in a strict religious community, Mashilo points to religion which cut off accessibility to other forms of spiritual practice. The portraits serve as a record of the many conversations and intimate retellings of religious and spiritual memories, sounds and practices which connect contemporary urban individuals to their ancestors.
Viewings of the exhibition are by appointment with 99 Loop Gallery.
Venue: 99 Loop Gallery, Loop St, Cape Town
Time: 11am to 3pm | By Appointment
