Lerato Shadi (born in Mahikeng, South Africa, lives in Berlin) makes the invisible or overlooked visible in her work and criticises purely Western notions of history. She places her body at the centre of her work—often in lengthy, physically demanding performances. The solo exhibition at the KINDL presents videos, neon signs, and a photographic work as well as a new series of textile works that address the relationship between the panel painting and performativity.
The exhibition is curated by Kathrin Becker.
The exhibition takes place as part of Berlin Art Week (9 – 13 September 2020).
