Published on the occasion of the 2014 exhibition by Thabiso Sekgala at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, this catalogue offers an intimate encounter with the artist’s photographs.
 
Paradise brings together a selection of more than twenty photographic works produced in Berlin and Istanbul over the past twelve months – Sekgala’s individual reflections on the theme of ‘paradise’, a concept linked to the same positive associations in very different cultural spheres. Sekgala also plays with the irony of the reverse viewpoint as an African in ‘paradise’: an irony, however, that is never cruel but allows us to recognise, in the way in which he captures people and objects in his images, the artist’s empathy and sympathy, which surely can be described as driving forces behind his artistic production.”
 
Paradise includes a preface by Ulrich Schröder, and two essays: Heaven can wait by Simon Njami and Paradise is found at the thresholds, not in the territory by Post Brothers.

Based in Johannesburg, Thabiso Sekgala (b.1981 – d.2014) was a photographer preoccupied with “human experience, whether lived or imagined.” He is remembered for his poignant reflections on such themes as abandonment, displacement and belonging. Sekgala studied at the Market Photo Workshop and was awarded the Tierney Fellowship in 2010.
