Coming soon new photoshoot with my work soooo excited #gumavila #rubberart #recycledrubber #recycledrubberart

Finsihed product a rubber purse with the pump and bolt clasp. Instagram made me crop out the beautiful model 😒 #gumavila #rubberfairy #rubberart #recycledrubberart #pagan #wiccanfest #wiccan #forestwitch @kay_boote

Almost done. Symbol of Sokolski Dom squat in Novo Mesto with a tractor tire around it as a refference to my tribal identity as #gumavila #rubberfairy #recycledrubberart #anarchist #hardcore

"Diasporic indigeneity is an emergent mode of identity characterised by immigrants claiming indigenous status in their new place(s) of residence, based on their status as colonised indigeneity in the place(s) where their ancestors lived formerly, and a corresponding re-imagining of their homeland as a geographic super-territory that includes both places." - Erich Fox Tree (2015). I found this image of one of my sculptures from No Man's Land (2015) on Seppuku Japan's page [mulpix.com/instagram/seppuku_japan.html]. It was most likely photographed at the Cape Town Art Fair 2016. I returned to the series in 2017 especially because we need a revival of historical African heroes like Yasuke in these tumultuous socio-political times. #yasuke #blacksamurai #africansamurai #recycledrubberart #sculptureart #odanobunaga #medievaljapan #figurativesculpture #repost

Throwback to Cape Town Art Fair 2016. This was taken the moment after my two remaining chairs and the samurai pictured here had been sold to an art foundation. On the wall hangs a work by @eleanorturvey. #yasuke #blacksamurai #africansamurai #eleanorturvey #humanshapedchairs #recycledrubberart #sculptureart #figurativesculpture #erdmanncontemporary #ctaf #artfair #capetownartist

Yasuke was officially delivered to and installed without any hassles in his new home! Very proud to have a work in the corporate collection of the Sovereign Trust. Thank you to @erdmanngallery for helping with the transport and set-up of this bulky beast 🙌

"The Samurai lived by a code of honor, not unlike the code that you live by. It’s called the Bushido. It was never written down; was always something the Samurai knew, and it was handed down from one warrior to another. One of the tenets of the code is about justice. Not the pounding of a gavel on the bench of some judge who’s been appointed to pass judgment on people by some politician. No, malaka, this concept of justice is what you feel in your bones: to die when it is right and to strike when it is right." - Kenneth Eade, 'An Evil Trade'. ▪

"The idleness of a passenger, my isolation amongst all of these men with whom I had no point of contact; the oily and languid sea, the uniform sombreness of the coast, seemed to keep me away from the truth of things, within the toil of a mournful and senseless delusion." - Joseph Conrad, 'Heart of Darkness'. ▪

I have discovered another article published by Kolumn Magazine about the upcoming Yasuke film that features various images from my 2015 "No Man's Land" series. Go and check it out on my website (link in bio)... It's linked under "Publications" in the "More" tab. 👌

👆 This is a bit of a deviation from the work that I normally do, but these furniture pieces evolved as a side-project after having worked with object-based pieces in my 'DIS(re)MEMBERINGS' installation in 2016. I am hoping there is a lot of potential to continue developing this project further in the future.

"I wanted to present Malintzin, or Dona Marina, a woman of multiple names and by extention, talents - as a person of independent judgement, of intense dramatic qualities, and of superior intellect... A woman of unparalleled confidence, visibility, and achievement." - Deena J. Gonzaléz (2005).

Very proud to share this gorgeous picture of #afternoonexpress presenter Andile wearing a belt I made for her out of rubber, lace, cinnamon, antique glass beads and star anise. 🔥 This is the first time a live model has worn any of my work. Much love to this wonderful lady. 🙌

"Certainly that black-white issue, good-bad, it's very prevalent in my work and in other Latinas. We're raised in a Mexican culture that has two role models: La Malinche and La Virgen de Guadalupe. And you know that's a hard route to go, one or the other, no in-betweens." - Sandra Cisneros. 👉"La Virgen (The Saviour)" currently on show at Absolut Art Gallery in Stellenbosch as a late addition to their "Black & White" exhibition.

Throwback to the VERY first samurai I ever made (2015). I had constructed this body extremely badly and it imploded about two days after this picture was taken. I reused most of the armour for more than one of my attempts following this one, though.

When I went for an interview at #afternoonexpress in March this year, I promised presenter Andile Mdakane I'd make her a piece of rubber clothing/an accessory. Now that Turbine Art Fair is done and dusted, I finally had some time to make good on that promise. This was her response to the picture I sent her. 👆

"Those candle flames were like the lives of men. So fragile. So deadly. Left alone, they lit and warmed. Let run rampant, they would destroy the very things they were meant to illuminate. Embryonic bonfires, each bearing a seed of destruction so potent it could tumble cities and dash kings to their knees." - Brandon Sanderson, 'The Way of Kings (The Stormlight Archive I)'.

"It will be the same silence, same as ever, murmurmous with muted lamentation, panting and exhaling of impossible sorrow, like distant laughter, or brief spells of hush as of one buried before his time. Long or short, the same silence. Then I resurrect and begin again." - Samuel Beckett, 'The Unnamable'. The issue of @dantemagazine containing my feature will be available online very soon.

"Apparently Yasuke was the most Instagrammed photo at this year's Fair."
And I've got some good news: Yasuke has also officially been sold to a private collector! First time in 18 months I've gotten a sale. 🙌

"But his kind will always lose in the end. I know this, and now I know why. Whether it's wife or nation they occupy, their mistake is the same: they stand still, and their stake moves underneath them.... Chains rattle, rivers roll, animals startle and bolt, forests inspire and expand [...]. Even a language won't stand still. A territory is only possessed for a moment in time. They stake everything on that moment, posing for photographs while planting the flag, casting themselves in bronze... Even before the flagpole begins to peel and splinter, the ground underneath arches and slides forward into its own new destiny. It may bear the marks of boots on its back, but those marks become the possessions of the land." - Barbara Kingsolver, 'The Poisonwood Bible' (1998).
Detail of 'No Man's Land V' (work in progress, February 2017) and an image from Swiss photographer Hennric Jokeit's 'Masquerade' series.

"I'm all these words, all these strangers, this dust of words, with no ground for their settling, no sky for their dispersing, coming together to say, fleeing one another to say, that I am they, all of them, those that merge, those that part, those that never meet, and nothing else, yes, something else, that I'm something quite different, a quite different thing, a wordless thing in an empty place, a hard shut dry cold black place, where nothing stirs, nothing speaks, and that I listen, and that I seek, like a caged beast born of caged beasts born of caged beasts born of caged beasts born in a cage and dead in a cage, born and then dead, born in a cage and then dead in a cage, in a word like a beast, in one of their words, like such a beast, and that I seek, like such a beast, with my little strength, such a beast, with nothing of its species left but fear and fury, no, the fury is past." - Samuel Beckett, 'The Unnamable'. Detail of No Man's Land IV (2015), Private collection, New York, USA.

#tbt to the Grad Show opening night a few months ago. The lovely lady with me is Macellin Kwawa. She used to work at the company where I've been buying all my Plaster of Paris bandages to make the body casts with since 2015. She came out all the way to campus to see my work in person.

"He struggled with himself, too. I saw it -- I heard it. I saw the inconceivable mystery of a soul that knew no restraint, no faith, and no fear, yet struggling blindly with itself." - Joseph Conrad.

"[He] was savage and superb, wild-eyed and magnificent; there was something ominous and stately in [his] deliberate progress. And in the hush that had fallen suddenly upon the whole sorrowful land, the immense wilderness, the colossal body of the pensive, as though it had been looking at the image of its own tenebrous and passionate soul."
- Joseph Conrad, 'Heart of Darkness'.
