The Whisperings of the Stars

4 February 2022

The Melrose Gallery is pleased to present Papytsho Mafolo's latest solo, The Whisperings of the Stars as their first exhibition of 2022.
His first solo in South Africa, will present a large body of new works created during 2021 including several works in large scales.
Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 1977, he currently lives and works in Belgium. His work explores the relativity between cultural identity and human behaviour, questioning cultural identity crises and the historical heritage of human societies with a particular focus on African culture.
Fragments of bodies, half man and half animal often appear in his paintings, which narrate the realities of an African culture fragmented by foreign hegemony.
