Art Exhibitions

Kat`emnyama

22 November 2019 - 3 January 2020

Photographer and artist in learning, Tony Gum wrestles with the infinite existence of womanhood, femininity, loss and solace in her latest exhibition offering, Kat’emnyama. The 24-year-old returns to the canvas to share an intimate show, which follows the journey of self-reflection and healing with her feline confidant; which echoes past and present relationships that have shaped the young artist. ‘Kat’, in Xhosa (Tony Gum’s home language) means cat in English. Black cats in most African cultures are synonymous with ‘bad luck’ or evil spirits. In this series, the artist rebelliously anchors the cat as the mode of messaging. The cat plays a central character in her installation on navigating life’s undulating paths.
