Brundyn Arts & Culture (BA&C) presents a landmark exhibition by contemporary South African photographer Lebohang Kganye at the Boschendal x Brundyn gallery, on Boschendal Estate. The exhibition in the Manor House runs until 28 March while the sculptures will be on display until the end of the year. 

The Sea is History comprises of four large-scale pop-up sculptures on the historic grounds of Boschendal Werf and a solo exhibition Mmoloki wa Mehopolo: Breaking Bread with a Wanderer inside the Manor House. This presentation not only elevates the artist’s sculptural practice but also marks Kganye’s first significant presentation in South Africa. The exhibition coincides with the start of Cape Town Art Week – an exciting and creative season concentrated in the urban hub of the city – by offering a unique experience that extends this energy to the Cape Winelands.

Brundyn Arts & Culture is particularly excited to highlight Kganye’s artistic growth and ability to raise profound questions through her work. She is an artist radically redefining the field of photography by expanding it beyond its traditional two-dimensionality. By innovating photography’s material quality, her practice transcends the conventional boundaries of the medium and offers deeper explorations of heritage, migration, and family archives. In so doing, she creates rich technical, material, and conceptual juxtapositions between light and shadow, memory and history, and the persistent impact of storytelling.

In this exhibition Kganye also invites audiences to join in an immersive journey of discovery with four life-size interactive sculptures.
