Candice Breitz and Mohau Modisakeng

Arsenale Sale d'Armi, Castello

In response to the Biennale’s theme, the South African Pavilion exhibition “Candice Breitz and Mohau Modisakeng” invites viewers to explore the artist’s role in visualising and articulating the notion of selfhood within a context of global marginalisation. What is it to be visible in everyday life, yet invisible and disregarded at the level of cultural, political or economic representation? Placing new works by Breitz and Modisakeng in dialogue, the exhibition reflects on experiences of exclusion, displacement, transience, migration and xenophobia, exploring the complex socio-­political forces that shape the performance of selfhood under such conditions.
