Statement

I have been working primarily with video, and have also engaged with other media in addresing concerns of political as well as the formalistic conventions of art. Using digital moving imagery in the tradition of portraiture as a performative form of identity.

My work is particularly concerned with the construction and deconstruction of black masculine identities in a postcolonial, post-apartheid South Africa. I generally works with images of "blackness" and "Africa", and scrutinises the means or apparatus by which these images are created.
