Südafrika in Deutschland

Kemang Wa Lehulere is Deutsche Bank Artist of the Year

Kemang Wa Lehulere has been named Deutsche Bank Artist of the Year. His work "Bird Song" is still exhibited at Deutsche Bank Gallery in Berlin. Kemang Wa Lehulere is one of the most important representatives of a new generation of South African artists who work in many different genres and media in order to develop new perspectives and narrative modes, as well as new forms of political commentary. His work, which now includes installations in addition to painting, theatre, performance, and actions, focuses on the repressed history of his home country South Africa. Wa Lehulere unearths submerged memories, bringing fragile beauty and poetry to his art. In his works, he reconstructs things that were lost or destroyed and at the same time makes the destruction visible. Thus the recurring motif of the bird in this exhibition is a multilayered symbol of freedom that is yearned for, fought for, and suppressed, or whose voice has been silenced.
