Lerato Shadi @ the KINDL

Lerato Shadi
Maru a Pula Is a Song of Happiness
13 September 2020 – 7 February 2021

Lerato Shadi (born in Mahikeng, South Africa, lives in Berlin) makes the invisible or overlooked visible in her work and criticises purely Western notions of history. She places her body at the centre of her work—often in lengthy, physically demanding performances. The solo exhibition at the KINDL presents videos, neon signs, and a photographic work as well as a new series of textile works that address the relationship between the panel painting and performativity.

Curated by Kathrin Becker.
