Résidence — Brussels

Bonolo Kavula

From 13/07/2023 to 20/08/2023

Fondation CAB Brussels is pleased to present its 24th artist-in-residence, Bonolo Kavula (b.1992, South Africa)

From her earliest works to the present, Bonolo Kavula’s art has existed between the intersections of painting, printmaking, drawing, relief wood carving and installation, pushing the limitations of each. Using the simple unit of the circle and line, Kavula has created a unique visual language that engages with geometric shapes and forms to reimagine the language of 1960s post-minimalism and serial art. While formalist in nature, Kavula incorporates traditional shweshwe cloth into her practice, evoking cultural, ancestral, archival and historical connotations specific to her work.
