'Nicholas Hlobo: Sculpture, Installation, Performance, Drawing'

Nicholas Hlobo at National Museum of Contemporary Art, Oslo

Nicholas Hlobo's first solo show in Scandanavia, focussing largely on the artist's production over the last five years, this exhibition presents a number of works that show how Hlobo uses sculpture, installation, performance and drawing to address issues of gender, cultural difference and contemporary politics. Hlobo’s work implicates viewers in the scenario of South African culture, providing enough clues to bridge the differences between his local cultural sensitivities and those of a global art world. He invites one to read his world through the visual play of materials and the poetry of his titles that touch global and South African realities.
