THE INBETWEEN: BATHO LE NAGA (PEOPLE AND LAND) - FRANS THOKA AND MASHIR KRESENSHUN

Frans Moshimanyana Thoka (know as Frans Thoka), an emerging contemporary talent whose work reflects on colonialism, his own experiences, and his memory. The artworks do not serve as a solution, however a surface where conversations about colonial injustices and other forms of imprisonment come into existence, possibly challenge how people perceive current life crisis specifically in black communities. He uses Prison blankets as his medium, which emphasises any form of imprisonment to the marginalized in society, and reminds the onlooker of the reality of the marginalized.

Mashir Kresenshun's works looks at the ideologies of what makes us human. He narrates and depict images of the great and the awful of life as a human being, regardless of race, culture, or religious constructs, through various topics and sub categories. As an Indian individual living in South Africa, he struggles to find his position on contemporary South Africa and the world. He uses cardboard and cable ties to construct sizable works, using an assorted range of media from drawing and painting with charcoal, acrylic and oil paint, watercolour , ink, collage to printmaking in techniques of monotypes, etchings, linocuts, woodcuts. He attempts to challenge the system of practiced thought in today's society regarding various issues surrounding humanity.
