Throughout her extensive production - which includes Linocut and digital printmaking, painting on canvas, drawing, sculptural installations, and video art - Malebona Maphutse narrates history. Her digital collages and installations appropriate the visuals and language of street flyers, bitingly exploring the historical debt resulting from systemic oppression. Her work seeks to investigate how bodies encounter space and transcend mere existence to understand the politics of space. To create time-landscapes, Malebona is likewise focused on the ritual and spiritual engagements occuring in different places, which inform a number of social, economic, religious and relational politics.
Malebona Maphutse is a Johannesburg based artist who has completed her BA (Fine Art) Degree at the University of Witwatersrand in 2017.
