Exhibition "Hybrids" by Nyaniso Lindi - On Tour in Southern Africa

South African visual artist Nyaniso Lindi spent three months in Paris from January to March 2010 as part of the 2009 Gerard Sekoto Prize. The concept of the work is around fictitious reality and focuses on the paradox between what is real and what is fictional. In the various works exhibited, Lindi portrays hybrids using functional objects like lamps and stoves fused with human forms.

Supported by the French Institute of South Africa in collaboration with SANAVA, the French Embassy in South Africa and the French cultural network of Alliances françaises in Southern Africa.
