Lungiswa Gqunta: Sleep in Witness opening party

  • Henry Moore Institute
  • Thursday, 7 July 2022
  • Opening night celebrating our new exhibition, 6-8pm, all welcome

The Institute's exhibition opening parties are back! Join us on Thursday 7 July to celebrate and be the first to see Lungiswa Gqunta: Sleep in Witness.

Free entry, 6 - 8pm, all are welcome. Drinks will be served.

This exhibition of new and recent work by Lungiswa Gqunta (b.1990, lives and works in Cape Town) will be the artist’s largest to date.

Through her sculpture and video, Gqunta unveils the legacies of colonialism in South Africa. 

Sleep in Witness includes two room-filling installations made especially for the exhibition, using materials drawn from South Africa’s histories and present, alongside the video Gathering 2019.

Landscape, memory, water and the body are linked throughout Gqunta’s work as connections are made between the landscape, place, the artist’s community and her ancestors.

Sign up for the opening night party via Eventbrite
