About Nandipha Mntambo

Nandipha Mntambo makes cascading sculptures that are molded from cowhide and suggest the human figure. These three-dimensional works, along with her photographs, videos, and performances, explore the similarities and differences between humans and animals, men and women, and attraction and repulsion. “I’m interested in uncovering that binary—that in-between space that you can’t always pinpoint or articulate,” Mntambo has said. A recent photograph series, titled “everyone carries a shadow,” explores the ambiguity of androgyny.

South African, b. 1982, Swaziland, based in Johannesburg, South Africa
