Malebona Maphutse

Born 1994 in South Africa, lives in Johannesburg.

"Through print, video, poetry and installation, my interest have manifested into a complex matrix involving the existence ofbodies in and around me including my own and their historical, physical and spiritual experiences. I have beeninvestigating how bodies have passed, impacted merely existence and will encounter spaces: to understand the politicsof space. My inspiration lies at the zenith of infinite but probable options that can be drawn from these spaces. Through this form of investigation I have gone on to explore a number of questions and situations that surround bodies."
