Black Lines

A’Mazed: Art fans who wish to explore Serge Alain Nitegeka’s exhibition will have to manoeuvre themselves through a complex maze of black wooden sculptures in order to see the Witsie’s show.  

Black Lines, on at the Stevenson Gallery in Braamfontein, addresses Nitegeka’s need to illustrate his experiences of dislocation when he was forced out of his home country of Burundi.

“I wanted viewers to have a raw experience of forced migration,” said Nitegeka. “My current installations depend on the viewers’ participation to be complete. The installations are realised through obstacle-like constructions that command the body to behave and move in a directed way.”
