UKWELAPHA – HEALING (article first published : 2007-08-6)

Gabisile Nkosi and Lindelani Ngwenya will be showing work that celebrates the feminine spiritual and physical healing powers, so the title of the exhibition is Ukwelapha – Healing.

Gabisile Nkosi explores this theme in linocut prints and Lindelani Ngwenya's sculptures are made from woven copper wire and ilala palm fronds.

“Healing echoes the need to establish balance through an integration of the spiritual and the physical, creating significance by exploring those things of meaning in my life and the relevance of these to others,” says Gabisile Nkosi of her work. “The prints which use metaphors and symbolism, generously share emotions and life experiences with force and vigour affirming that I will continue to use my talents to change lives; to heal, inform and educate, emancipating the innate potential and unique capacity of all human beings who come into my life."

Well-known Durban sculptor Dina Cormick will open the exhibition at 17h30 on August 15.

The African Art Centre is now situated in Florida Road. More information on 031 312 3805, fax 031 312 3818 or cell 082 828 0211.
