Gold, Guns & Paradise

29 February 2020

Curated by Els van Mourik

“My work is informed by my upbringing and experiences as a person of mixed race and heritage (termed “coloured”) in apartheid and post-apartheid South Africa. I extract from my life experiences to create my work.
 
I work under the moniker of a fictional character called King Champion. King Champion is the finder and custodian of ancient stories. What stories, you ask? The lost and distorted historical narratives of the African continent and its diaspora. Stories our ancestors buried to keep them safe from a gaze that distorted them. Stories about who we are and who we come from. Stories about where we come from and how we came to be.”
