    TAXI-012: Sandile Zulu
    R250.00 inc. VAT

    TAXI-012 SANDILE ZULU, the 12th title in the TAXI Art series, is the first book on the work of Sandile Zulu. Over the last decade, Zulu has developed a working method that relies as much on rhythm and repetition as it does on the unpredictability of the elements – fire, water, found objects – he uses. He is, as Colin Richards notes in his meticulously researched essay, a pyromancer, a collector of natural elements, and a scavenger after industrial debris.

    TAXI-014 Mmakgabo Mmapula Mmankgato Helen Sebidi
    R250.00 inc. VAT

    Mmakgabo  Sebidi traverses mental and physical landscapes with an eye trained on the dangerous, the discomfiting, the traumatic and the ecstatic in human experience. She is deeply grounded in her rural upbringing and traditions but also finely attuned to the rhythms of the city in which she has spent much of her adult life. Sebidi brings together these two worlds in works of great visionary and prophetic power. Her themes are wide-ranging: her cultural roots, the wisdom of the ancestors, the ravages of the modern world on the human psyche, the loss of tradition, the potential of human creativity to build relationships and restore the past.
