Kiluanji Kia Henda, Structures of Survival (Kilometer 19, Namibe) III
David Goldblatt & Kiluanji Kia Henda: Frameworks
Jan 27 – Mar 6, 2024
Goodman Gallery
Johannesburg, South Africa

Goodman Gallery presents Frameworks, a dialogue between selected works by David Goldblatt and Kiluanji Kia Henda. Through film and photography, the exhibition explores notions of migrancy and belonging in the context of two distinct yet interconnected societies in Southern Africa: Angola and South Africa – places that continue to wrestle with the legacy of colonial dispossession and its intersection with contemporary challenges.

Both artists’ practices have emerged within these complex social fabrics. Where urban, rural or nomadic structures – or their destruction – can be seen as expressions of underlying values and ideologies. From humble dwellings to large-scale urban development, Frameworks reflects on permanence and impermanence.
