Indawo Yami / My Place
Meet Queer visual activist and photographer Zanele Muholi, at the opening of her exhibition on Idawo Yami / My Place at Taiga on 22 October and join her in discussion on 23 October at Press Club Zelenaya Lampa after the screening of her film Difficult Love.
|Indawo Yami, which means 'my place' or 'my space', continues to explore the implications of being black and queer through a range of different series and strategies. Being, a continuation of ongoing work, focuses on a quiet and tender celebration of love within the homosexual community, whether between mothers and sons, between lovers or between friends. Muholi writes:|
"Indawo Yami is where I work, where I share an environment with others, where I act on the issues marking our lives through visual documentation. My focus is mainly on being queer (LGBTI) in South Africa and beyond. This is the realm in which I deal with my identity, as a citizen of my country and of the world."
Place: Taiga, 20 Dvortsovaya Embankement
Exhibition runs 22 October - 29 October, 14 - 21 weekdays and weekend.
