Thandiwe Msebenzi has a lens-based practice in which she recreates memories and dreamscapes, using a visual culture which is often specific to her familial home in the rural Eastern Cape. In 2014, she completed her BFA from Michaelis School of Fine Art. She is currently working on a series titled Radical Makaza, a series of narratives about Msebenzi’s aunt and her journey of moving to Cape Town and finding independence during apartheid. This story is interwoven with Msebenzi’s own. The photographs and videos explore the subtle ways that Black women’s experiences have been rendered invalid or invisible within the overarching South African historical narrative, and the radical ways that they have resisted this erasure.
