Press Release | Blank Projects
"Mamiya, I do not presume to know the course of her life nor will I ever understand her predicament, motherhood and the pursuit of family."
Nomthunzu Mashalaba. Charcoal and acrylic on cotton fabric.
Blank projects is pleased to present Nomthunzi Mahalaba’s second solo exhibition, Mamiya. In this exhibition, Mashalaba explores the possibility of rematerializing moments in her past by using old family photographs as tools to reincarnate the past in the present.
This exercise is centred on the artist’s relationship with, and memories of her mother. With a light hand, Mashalaba tests photography as a relational medium through reworkings of the source images in large-scale charcoal and mixed media drawings on stretched cotton fabric, and intimate smaller drawings and collages.
