What are we all waiting for?
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.
