CHANT asks: ‘How does one stand centred within the ceaseless onslaught of social, political and economic upheaval?’ We are living in the repetitive rhythmical momentum of history. Caught within power structures and imbalances that restate themselves through every epoch. Faith XLVII is an internationally-acclaimed visual artist from South Africa. The seeds for her works begin with a raw intimacy. Exploring the duality of human relationships, her imagery carries the profound weight of our interconnectedness. Through her work she attempts to disarm the strategies of global realpolitik in order to advance the expression of personal truth. In this way, her work is both an internal and spiritual release that speaks to the complexities of the human condition, its deviant histories and existential search. Channelling the international destinations that have been imprinted on her after two decades of interacting with urban environments as one of the most renowned and prolific muralists, she continues to examine our place in the world. Using a wide range of media, her approach is explorative, including found and rescued objects, shrine construction, painting, projection mapping, video installation, printmaking and drawings.
