Each day Zeitz MOCAA offers a short, 15-minutes tour of one object or one artist. This tour is designed for individuals who wish to gain an in-depth knowledge of contemporary art through regular short visits during their lunch break.
Today’s tour will focus on the installation, Iimpundulu Zonke Ziyandilandela by South African artist, Nicholas Hlobo. As oral histories inevitably disappear, Hlobo represents the Xhosa myth of the Lightning Bird or the witch’s servant, manifesting itself as a bird or an attractive man. Hlobo, however, morphs the myth to particular personal concerns taking into account taboos associated with masculinity and violence.
The tour will be lead by an Assistant Curator. Curator-led audio-guide devices will be available. Maximum 20 persons per tour.
Meet in the Grand Hall area, near the reception desk.
