artist(s)Moshekwa Langa

Moshekwa Langa was born in Bakenburg, South Africa in 1975, more than a decade before the official end of apartheid in 1989. As a black South African, he not only witnessed but also experienced first hand the injustices of racial segregation and the effects of the vast government program known as “grand apartheid.” Not surprisingly, the traumas associated with racism, dislocation, displacement, and alienation are pervasive themes in Langa’s autobiographical work.

The present ensemble, entitled Interior Monologue, comprises several of Langa’s collages, paintings, videos, and installation pieces made since his move from Johannesburg to Amsterdam. Beautiful, layered abstractions that recall the African landscape and reveal millennia of geological strata serve as both the literal and conceptual ground for the artist’s other investigations.
