Full Details

We are proud to present our first solo show Sleep in Witness by Lungiswa Gqunta (b. 1990) at AKINCI. Gqunta is a sculptor living in Cape Town, South Africa, who works across assemblages, installation, performance and printmaking. Gqunta examines the enclosures imposed upon African knowledge systems and sees this deprival as a symptom of colonial history and conquest. She positions dreams as a response to this curtailment and a space from which new languages, wisdoms and information for living emerge.
