Nandipha Mntambo: Transcending Instinct

With a new solo exhibit at Cape Town’s prestigious Southern Guild gallery, artist Nandipha Mntambo is making her first foray into the world of functional sculpture. Through her prior paintings and sculptures, she has focused on the movement of the body, but her new pieces address the body in repose. Mntambo is a multidisciplinary artist, moving fluidly between sculpture, drawing, performance, video and photography, who rose to prominence for her cowhide sculptures. She sees her oeuvre to date as a continuous and interconnected body of work. Based in Johannesburg today, she studied and worked for many years in Cape Town.
