Pitika Ntuli : Azibuyele Emasisweni
Apr 14 - Jan 01 2024 - 97 days left
As a Sangoma it is no surprise Pitika Ntuli turned to animal bones as the medium, for this body of work - 45 bone sculptures all paired with praise songs. This makes for an unexpected contemporary art exhibition; African spiritualism and contemporary art are rarely bedfellows and his use of animal bones (elephant, rhino, giraffe and horses) which are gently coaxed into anthropomorphic shapes sculptures make for striking works.
