Lindokuhle Sobekwa – Umkhondo. Tracing memory

Until 4 September from 10:00 to 18:00

Exhibition

In Umkhondo. Tracing Memory Lindokuhle Sobekwa connects existing and new work. His family, his ancestors and the landscape in which they live on form the thread running through his oeuvre and are part of Sobekwa's search for an explanation of past events.

Origin and identity

The first-ever museum exhibition of the young and exceptionally talented South African photographer Lindokuhle Sobekwa. Different stories intertwine in a moving oeuvre that can be seen as an autobiographical narrative, founded on the search for origins and identity. Sobekwa uses various techniques and media to support his stories, without losing his characteristic visual language. He effortlessly alternates between black and white and colour, digital and analogue, stills and moving images.

Family

In Umkhondo. Tracing Memory Lindokuhle Sobekwa (Johannesburg, 1995) combines existing and new work in order to trace the thematic lines that run through his photographs. His family, his ancestors, and the landscape in which they live on are recurring themes in his oeuvre and form part of Sobekwa’s search for explanations for past events. His moving and intimate work directs the gaze towards his immediate surroundings, to his own identity and to the related larger issues at play in South African society.

Umkhondo

In Xhosa, the photographer’s mother tongue, the word Umkhondo can have many different meanings. It can be ‘tracing’ or ‘tracking’ something, but it can also refer to evidence, a symptom of sickness or a footprint. In the exhibition at Huis Marseille, Sobekwa traces various routes through his own work and connects certain mysterious events, mapping out his own narrative along the way.
