Angaza Afrika, translated from the Swahili to mean “Shed light on Africa” or “Look around Africa”, is comprehensive in its range. Each work will be a stunning visual and physical manifestation of the artists’ energy and spirit, such as Rachid Kora’s Sufi-inspired black and white applique work and the beautiful work of South African artist Karel Nel, who sets vast leaves from the Coco de Mer palms in atmospheric, elemental architectural spaces.
In this series of colour photographs Guy Tillim looks intimately at the daily life of the residents of a village in central Malawi. On two occasions he stayed for a week in the village and quietly observed the conversations and routines of the day. His lyrical images of the residents and the textures of the village linger with their stillness and reserve. The concertina-style book is published by Punctum Press.
