MAKE THE CIRCLE BIGGER - ILANDI BARKHUIZEN

Artist Statement

In this body of work, I portray most of SA's traditional garments (about 9 cultures) as opposed to one because I want to focus on South Africa's cultures, not just one specific culture. In my research of the history of these dresses have found that the clothing items such as the necklaces and the hats all have a reason or meaning. The Zulu people, wear animal skins to show their marital status and leopard skins (king of all predators) to show their royal status. The Ndebele are known for their thick beaded hoops that they wear around their necks, arms, wrists, and waist - known as isigolwani. The Swazi or Swati have traditional attire for specific gender and age groups. These are only a few examples of information I have learnt while researching the clothing history.
