"As I look outside my window. I see something I can't believe. And if I close my window. What will the future bring." - Puff Johnson 

The exhibition internalises a window and brings forth questions on the panoramic, panoptic and stereoscopic as political encounters. The exhibition engages the screen, its politics, representations in speaking to land justice, spirituality, considerations of land dispossession, exile and migration; in attempting to position fictive subjects in the construction of new worlds, as a kind of refuge seeking.  

The exhibition invites a user to see without attempting to mimic the external view of a fabricated image and its external constellations of interfacing within an orbit. The exhibition is a nonlinear Web VR, which overlays with the spherical frames that joins, disconnects and weaves all the various nodes together. 

'Spatial Fabrications: An Uninhabitable World' as commissioned for Fak'ugesi African Digital Innovation Festival #PowerToThePixel and supported by Pro Helvetia Johannesburg, South African Department of Sports, Arts & Culture, National Arts Council and the Gauteng Film Commission.

Themba Khumalo

In the work by Themba Khumalo titled 'Evictions', this film engages manifold lived experiences which are rendered invisible.

Mbali Dhlamini

Mbali Dhlamini’s work 'Ukuhlamba' entangles notions of spirituality reminding the viewer of the immediate subject who is a shape shifter of their own body and gaze, becoming confrontational with the viewer. 

Phumulani-Ntuli-16-540x540.jpg

Phumulani Mtuni

Ntuli’s work, an essayistic montage, disavows narrations and brings in view different forms of impossibility of sites of the sea, which are seemingly uninhabitable. The exhibition poses the questions: what kind of worlds, spaces, religions are habitable? Worlds conducive for a breathing subject who is a shapeshifter, a world-maker, a decommissioner; one who attends to decolonising models.
