In the next installment of our viewing room programme, Kagiso Pat Mautloa will present new compelling work created during a residency that he took part in at the National School of the Arts this year. As part of the residency, Mautloa spent time at the school’s Art Gallery, making work and presenting workshops that elucidated on his creative process. Following this show, the works will be displayed at the National School of the Arts Gallery.

The new series is a vivid collection of drawings accompanied by sculptures that powerfully shift between abstraction, collage and ghostlike figuration. Much like Mautloa’s previous work, these drawings and objects take their departure from the artist strolls around the streets of his city. The result is a union of urban debris and internal reflection – an amalgamation of old fragments forming something novel and refreshing.
