Ntila explores multiple paths of visual storytelling; from directing to video work – in most of her photographs she uses herself as the primary subject.
We caught up with Lunga Ntila, a visual artist who uses storytelling to evoke messages within her work.
Ntila’s work has been showcased at the Art Book Fair in Sao Paulo, Brazil and the Keyes Art Mile summer exhibition in 2018 as well as at the 2019 Investec Cape Town Art Fair.
In 2018 Between 10and5 named her one of four South African creatives to watch alongside Nkhensani Mkhari, Rendani Nemakhavhani and Ferrari Sheppard.
In 2019 she was listed as a part of the Design Indaba‘s emerging creatives class.
Her work explores themes of identity, displacement, reconciliation and healing while trying to establish a new age take on indigenous knowledge systems.
Check out what she had to say above.
