What are we all wait­ing for?

Sowetan - - Timeout Art / Opinion -

Sam Nh­lengethwa brings his Wait­ing ex­hi­bi­tion to the Good­man Gallery in Cape Town. It ex­plores the myr­iad ways in which we find our­selves oc­cu­pied by this state of be­ing.

What are we wait­ing for?, is the ex­hi­bi­tion’s theme emerg­ing from univer­sal ex­pe­ri­ence.

“We all see peo­ple wait­ing and some­times we be­come vic­tims of wait­ing,” he says.

Nh­lengethwa de­picts sce­nar­ios through the rich fig­u­ra­tive medi­ums of litho­graphic prints, mixed me­dia col­lage and ta­pes­try. A col­laged sepia photo of a young Win­nie Madik­izela-Man­dela seated in a brightly painted liv­ing room is part of the ex­hi­bi­tion end­ing on De­cem­ber 1.
