“I am attracted to the skeleton of identity, awareness, perspective and framing, as a way of understanding ideologies that govern the different facets that exist within us and around us,” says Lunga Ntila. “I am also slowly truly discovering the interconnectedness of everything on this planet, identifying the patterns that form the bigger web, and how we all play a role in it. I think I am able to show that through distortion because I am combining elements which are ‘different’ and putting them together in a way that still makes sense.”
Ukuzilanda was made in collaboration with Dream Press in Cape Town, a small, independent press that works with artists, writers and illustrators to produce riso-printed books and zines.
Lunga Ntila (b. 1995) is a conceptual photographer whose work is marked by storytelling, identity and deconstruction. Extending the genre of self-portraiture with fragmentation and collage, the compositions she creates are a confluence of diverse references.
