Uninhabited Territories

Presented by Next Wave

Uninhabited Territories"The post-apartheid struggle is far from over, but it has shifted. Young South Africans are voicing opinions and creating their own identities in dynamic and creative ways outside of the overtly political arena." Raffaella Della-Donne, South African writer

Uninhabited Territories is an exhibition of new work by young contemporary artists from South Africa. Curated by Fiona Maxwell and Rachael Watts, the exhibition features new media, film, photography and works on paper. Macabre, bizarre and morbid visual representations come to the fore as a means of playfully addressing issues close to the heart such as politics, representation, violence and identity.
