Join us for a screening of ISIMO, a contemplative film developed in the wake of Covid-19 by artist Sethembile Msezane in response to a personal and societal need to maintain mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing. In the film, Msezane explores indigenous South African wellbeing practices – recognising the land, its plants and all their healing properties as a holistic route that addresses the need for wellness during the pandemic and the wider ongoing pressures of the postcolonial experience.

The screening will be followed by a conversation with the artist about the film, her art practice and personal politics. We will consider how the film reflects a wider creative practice underpinned by spiritual and political symbolism, issues around spirituality, commemoration, and African knowledge systems.

We will end with an audience Q&A, and Msezane will give a preview of her newest work Let the Emerald Village Carry Me.

Have a question you’d like to send in advance for the Q&A? Email [email protected] with ‘Reconnecting’ in the subject line and we’ll aim to answer as many questions as we can on the day.
