In her work, Dineo Seshee Bopape explores memory and identity through a socio-political perspective. Her combinations of images and objects multiply her narratives and viewpoints on society, gender, sexuality and colonial history. She is the winner of the Future Generation Art Prize 2017, as well as the Sharjah Biennial Prize 2017. She is represented by the Sfeir-Semler (Beirut) and Bendana Pinel (Paris) galleries.
For several years, Dineo Bopape has explored the element of earth from different angles that are intimately related to the socio-politics: the history of the possession and dispossession of land, the social-economic-political histories of diverse types of mining (minerals, metals, nutriments, etc.) and its implications for our collective body and the body of the earth.
In the context of her residency project Vibe: Sa lerole ke kosha, she will explore this element and study the energy and resonance of minerals to translate them into song. The research will therefore take the form of a song: creating a song of the earth, creating songs for the earth and recording them in different places.
