Lunga Ntila

For the young South African emerging artist Lunga Ntila, femininity and sexuality are the basis of her “distorted” self-portraits through which she expresses her commitment: ”My feminism looks like freedom; it is opinionated and unapologetic”. Through her fragmented selfie-collages she addresses the subject of blackness and beauty by referring to art historical movements such as Cubism and Dadaism in relation to African culture.

 

The artist’s contributed to the Of Beauty, Blackness & Power exhibition_ at Arendt House.
