Art Exhibitions

Faith: Rituals, Spirit & Sea

16 May 2019

 Award-winning Mozambican photographer Mário Macilau, whose work focuses on the representation of socially and economically marginalised groups, will soon open his first solo exhibition in Johannesburg, at Guns & Rain gallery in Parkhurst. His work has been shown in dozens of high-profile exhibitions around the world, including at the famed Venice Biennale in 2015.
 
His Faith series, soon to be exhibited in Johannesburg, explores indigenous religious practices in contemporary Mozambique - ranging from teaching to healing to rites of passage - founded on the belief that individual spirits and ancestors inhabit natural objects and phenomena.
 
The exhibition will include a charity auction - facilitated by Aspire Art Auctions - taking place on opening night 16th May, with proceeds donated to Gift of the Givers to support Mozambican survivors of Cyclone Idai.

Participating: Mario Macilau
