Fragments of Infinity: Unveiling Multidimensional Realms

A solo exhibition featuring Mbali Tshabalala

Deconstructed" breaks new ground in art presentation, inviting artists to redefine their creative expression. Fragments of Infinity: Unveiling Multidimensional Realms by Mbali Tshabalala is the second exhibition in the Deconstructed Series of solo exhibitions hosted at Asisebenze Art Atelier.

This vibrant and thought-provoking exhibition delves into the rich tapestry of culture and tradition, the complexities of mental health, the power of womanhood, and the depths of spirituality. Immerse yourself in a captivating experience that will enlighten, inspire, and connect you to profound stories and perspectives.

The title of this show references the artist's engagement with multiple subject matters, ranging from spirituality and mental health to womanhood and culture. Tshabalala's exploration of various mediums and her introspective unpacking of numerous themes express a culmination of her thematic ventures. However, this exhibition presents a novel investigation of her subject matter and medium choices, appearing to be re-examinations from the ground up. By presenting a fusion of abstracted elements and figuration, the viewer is met with works that bring elements often found in Tshabalala's background into the foreground, while her signature self-portraiture fades into the background. This back-and-forth interchanging of elements in search of the undiscovered is what inspired the exhibition's title.

While simultaneously being an exploration of the self, this exhibition examines aspects of Afrocentricity by referencing ancient African knowledge systems and thought processes. By intermingling these with more contemporary ideas, this exhibition becomes the result of that collision course and the broth of that melting pot.
