1-54 Studio Visit Series
with Mbali Dhlamini

Mbali Dhlamini, represented by Sakhile&Me, invited 1-54 to her studio in Johannesburg.

Mbali Dhlamini is a multidisciplinary artist and visual researcher whose work explores the decolonisation of contemporary African identity-making. She performs visual, tactile, and discursive investigations into current indigenous cultural practices. Her work is in constant conversation with her past and present visual landscapes. Working to maintain a state of unlearning and relearning, her process recognises language as a medium of understanding and as a repository of knowledge. Mbali Dhlamini exhibited a selection of works with Sakhile&Me at 1-54 London 2020.
