Botsalano le Megopolo: En nous, Entre nous

6 August 2022

“Botsalano le Megopolo: En nous, Entre nous” translate to the “relationships and memories: in us, between us”'.
This exhibition is a collaborative presentation of the dual/joined one-year Studio Bursary between Princia Matungulu and Kutlwano Monyai. Both artists share similar thematic where they both investigate their identity as Black women from transcultural African diasporas. These artists reflect on their past experiences, practices and norms which are tied to their matrilineal relationships.
In their work, Princia and Kutlwano attempts to reveal the genealogical time from different generations that shows subtle ways in which moulding/bonding between mothers and daughters would take place.
Though the artists’ work in different mediums, they reference the familial and/or kinship objects. Reimagining how these objects - or the essence of them - would look like? How would they have existed through the matrilineal lineage? What sacred ties would one be reclaiming between oneself, the women around them and those preceding them? What would these intimacies feel like and what would they be saying?
Having relationships fuels our memories, and making memories sustains the relationship - and it is the two that influences our identity.
