Zanele Muholi – Somnyama Ngonyama
29 November 2022 - 29 January 2023
In more than 30 self-portraits, celebrated visual activist Zanele Muholi (South African, b. 1972), uses their body as a canvas to confront the deeply personal politics of race and representation in the visual archive.
In Somnyama Ngonyama, which translates from isiZulu to ‘Hail The Dark Lioness’, Muholi playfully employs the conventions of classical painting, fashion photography, and the familiar tropes of ethnographic imagery to rearticulate contemporary identity politics. Each black and white self-portrait asks critical questions about social (in)justice, human rights, and contested representations of the Black body. It’s a great chance for you to visit this exhibition. Zanele Muholi already showcased in Tate Modern and it’s a fantastic opportunity to see her works in Belgium.
