Our third featured artist is Nhlonipho Mthembu, he lets us in on what inspired his latest body of work.
In this body of work I am dealing with the different situations one might encounter in public transport, more specificaly inside trains. The social aspect of train transportation within the train coaches is an issue of great concern and my main point of focus. This work explores the dynamics of this social environment in terms of congestion and decongestion, while also looking at the different psycological interactions that happen within the train coaches as a result of human presence or absence.
To see this and more of Nhlonipho’s work visit the exhibition at Nex Dor Resturant on Vilakazi Street, Orlando West from the 20 of March till 20 April 2013.
