For our upcoming young people profile we present fine art student and mixed media artist Bogosi Sekhukhuni who’ll be performing at the ‘Expressions of Freedom’ exhibition hosted at Constitutional Hill tonight. He’s also collaborated with the Stevenson Gallery and Goethe Institute.
So what do you do?
I am a mixed media artist.
And what does that entail?
It just basically means that I use different mediums of art and creating content.
Would you like to explain that for us?
I use digital platforms extensively, with an inclusion of performance, architecture and sculpture.
What does your work explore?
I basically make art about being a coconut in post apartheid. Just as to how the carnage that was apartheid has influenced today’s current socio-political sphere and how, we as people of South Africa, establish ourselves and the spaces where we interact or dismiss.
Who would you say is currently your favourite artist?
There are a few guys in the city that I respect from cussgroup to the alphabet zoo guys.
What are you currently working on?
School and a conceptual video piece.
Well, all the best man and stay amazing
