Peregrinate – Group Show

Second Transition series

The exhibition explores the concept of photography as a common method of investigation, discovery and representation – an act of wandering undertaken by the photographer as traveler and explorer.

With Thabiso Sekgala, Musa Nxumalo and Mimi Cherono Ng’ok.

Traversing Soweto streets, backyards in Nairobi, dusty Jordanian alleys, ‘Peregrinate: Field Notes on Time, Travel and Space’ invites viewers to consider the intimate politics of home and belonging, as well as the possibilities inherent in dislocation, or a lack of anchoring, and the routes one takes to find a way. Sub-titled ‘field notes on time travel and space’, the exhibition examines notions of spatial politics, the economics of time and travel, and the kinds of access granted to travelers.  The travels of three different wanderers are juxtaposed as temporal sculptures to chronicle the personal experience of journeying within the home, neighborhood and country, as well as the act of departing for distant places.

This exhibition is in partnership with Goethe Institut, Lagos.
