La Matière vivante

Galleria Continua, Via del Castello 11, San Gimignano, Italy

Galleria Continua presents for the first time, two protagonists of the contemporary art scene, Donna Kukama and Nandipha Mntambo,

From the curator’s text: “Donna Kukama and Nandipha Mntambo are two South African artists that, each in their own way, put material into discussion. The matera prima, is the starting point in alchemy, after which one eventually arrives at the rubedo, or the final distillation. Bronze, copper, steel, plaster, wood, animal furs, and
horns are the starting elements for the composition of their stories. What’s unique about the material is that it’s alive. It’s anchored in the present, by its materiality, but it contains a memory that dates back to eternity. The work of these two artists is firmly anchored in a memory with which they play at will”.
