My crazy brains friend, artist Nandipha Mntambo left for Stockholm yesterday where she will be having her first European Solo Exhibition at Andrehn-Schiptjenko Gallery. This is a big deal but it is no surprise because Nandi's sculptures are something else.  She uses cow hide and a lot of the times moulds the hide in the shape of her own body, exhibit A above. The exhibition is titled ''Kufa nekuvuka kwelutsandvo'' and will be on from 16 May to 20 June 2013.  I don't know what the title means but it's in a Nguni language and the first two words mean to die and to wake. She probably won't like the fact that I posted this but her work is too amazing not to share and I don't care that there's a possibily that utlang'divosa when she reads this. She is represented by Michael Stevenson Gallery and you can click here to read more about her and see her provocative work.
