SABONA, Introducing visiting artist resident at the gallery Tamsanqa (Tamu) Nkiwane. Born 1990, lives and works in London, United Kingdom. Tamu has been with us since January doing a research residency.  The gallery is inviting you to Dousling House, for EITHA UNGUSWI ZIM//CITY a siNdebele slang for, Hello how are you Zim, a series of events from Wednesday 7 to Friday 9 March 2018 in the form of a discussion and exhibition emanating from a 2 months research residency at the NGB. Tamu is interested in the topography of Zimbabwe and the transition from one state to another.

Progressing from the initial presentation at the NGB on 19 January titled TARMAC, Fire imagery acts as a symbol of conversion, everything touched causes a reaction. The objects and imagery in this work are a reflection of the feedback. Found materials and material collage help navigate a personal inspection of one’s surroundings, histories and footing within the ooze of modernscape.
